Summer Young Writer’s Camp

Summer Young Writer's Camp


Young Writer’s Camp is a place where emerging and fluent writers can practice and refine their writing skills, share with others, and grow as artisans and thinkers. Each day, they will investigate the art of writing, apply the craft to their own writing, and celebrate what they have done with fellow campers.

Camps are either half-day or full day and held for writers ages 9-18 (rising 4th -12th grade). All camps are held at UTSA Downtown Campus, so campers get to experience a college campus environment.
