Summer Writing Camp

July 9 - 20​, 2018

The RIWP Summer Writing Camp takes place on July 9-20, M-F, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Henry Barnard School at Rhode Island College.

Participants will receive more detailed information about class locations and instructors after registration period has ended in late June.​

The Writing Camp is a program designed for students in grades K-12 who enjoy writing. Staffed by experienced local educators, our camp helps students develop their writing as they share their work in a lively, interactive, and supportive community.

Camp features include:

  • Writing exercises designed to jumpstart thinking and improve each writer’s craft
  • Exploration of the work of published authors to use as models in a variety of genres
  • Freedom to explore individual writing interests
  • Opportunities to collaborate with instructors and peers and to receive constructive feedback for revision
  • A space for students to see themselves as writers with individual voices

At the end of the program, each participant will publish a self-selected piece in a compilation of student writing. All students will receive a copy of their group’s anthology.​​​
