Young Writers' Camp logo

Campers at the UNCG Young Writers’ Camp create 21st century texts using digital tools such as storyboarding, blogging, and movie-making during this two week camp experience. In daily writing workshops, campers work with UNCG faculty, graduate students, NC teachers, and local authors. The camp introduces young writers to the writing process, unlocks strategies of professional writers, and supports development of variety of writing styles. All work is published on our website.

The UNCG Young Writers’ Camp is held for two weeks in July, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am-12:00 pm on the UNCG campus. Enrollment is limited to 100 students. Students will be divided into three different sections based on grade level (3-5; 6-8; and 9-12). Each section will have approximately 30 students and at least two instructors. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
