USF Creative Writing Camp (Grades 9-12)
Rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will work with published authors, creative writing faculty, and MFA graduate students at the University of South Florida to develop their storytelling skills and engage with larger conversations about anti-racism and social justice.
Studying different elements of craft and technique each week, students will read a range of published work and develop a vocabulary for discussing different genres of creative writing. Engaging with multi-genre prompts, students will write their own short story, poems, comics, and nonfiction and receive individualized feedback on their work from published authors. Through discussions on process and revision, students will learn about the different stages of the writing process and experiment with different writing forms and techniques.
