The Pennsylvania Writing & Literature Project offers camps for students who love to write and read. The programs teach writing as a process in a relaxed, camp environment. All classes are small, averaging 13-15 students. All instructors are experienced teachers and Fellows of the National Writing Project.
Young Writers/Young Readers (YW/YR) teaches writing in a relaxed, non-threatening camp environment. Students try age-appropriate strategies and gain confidence. They compose, share, explore new genres, edit, and confer. Participants also share and explore quality children's literature and are invited to publish a page in the group anthology. Grade levels vary by site.
A variety of other programs are offered for students who want to focus on a specific genre of writing. Specialty classes include: Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror Writing; College Essay Writing; SAT Prep; Writing Adventures; Reading and Writing with the Arts, and Creative Genre Writing Workshop for Teens. These programs have limited enrollment and are offered only at specific locations and for specific grade levels. See our brochure for details.
Youth Programs are held at West Chester University, in sponsoring school districts in Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties, and at Longwood Gardens and Valley Forge National Historical Park.
