Spartanburg Junior Writing Project 2015

"Keep Calm and Write"

We are now taking applications from students in grades 3 - 12 for the 2015 Spartanburg Junior Writing Project.  This year's event will be held June 8-29, 2015 from 9 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Tuition is $150, but discounts are available for families with multiple students.

This camp, which is open to students throughout the Upstate, always produces memorable experiences and wonderful original writings from promising authors. The deadline to register is May 30, 2015.

The Spartanburg Junior Writing Project is a two-week, summer writing-enrichment program. This camp gives students the opportunity to work with professional writers to learn writing techniques and strategies from trained Writing Teacher Consultants, to make new friends and to celebrate creativity with other young writers. Using a writer's workshop approach, teachers encourage students to stretch their writing skills and ideas, and to use technology to learn about writing in the 21st Century. All students will enjoy seeing their work published in the camp anthology and will get to share one original piece with a live audience. This is the premiere camp for young authors - a place to enjoy small group instruction with other writers of similar ages.

    If you have questions about this program please contact Tonya Beaty, SJWP Director, or Tasha Thomas, SWP Director.
