2017 ASFA Creative Writing Summer Programs

| JUNE 5 – 9 | 

Beginning Creative Writing Camp (Rising 6 – 8th Grade Students)

  • 8:00 am – 12:00 pm Tuition: $195
  • 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm Tuition: $195

Do you love stories—writing them, watching them, dreaming them up? Have you written poems you’ve never shown anyone? Does the thought of reading a new book excite you more than just about anything else? Then this half-day camp is for you! Pick either the morning or afternoon session; this camp is perfect for mixing and matching with ASFA’s other half-day camps this week! In either session, ASFA’s award-winning Creative Writing faculty will introduce rising 6 – 8th grade students to the fundamentals of creative writing (poetry and prose), offer generative prompts, and provide constructive feedback. Tuition includes a writing journal, an anthology of work created during the week, and a daily snack.

Intermediate Creative Writing Camp (Rising 7 – 9th Grade Students)

  • 8:00 am – 12:00 pm Tuition: $195

This camp is specially designed for students who have completed the Beginning Creative Writing Camp in a previous summer and/or are seriously considering applying for admission into ASFA’s Creative Writing department during the regular school year. It’s also a good opportunity for students who have been admitted to the ASFA-CW program to get prepared for the coming school year. After a quick review of the fundamentals, ASFA’s Creative Writing faculty will help campers to dive deep into the craft of writing while offering generative prompts and providing constructive feedback. Tuition includes a writing journal, an anthology of work created during the week, and a daily snack. This camp is perfect for mixing and matching with ASFA’s other half-day afternoon camps this week!
