Gustavus Adolphus College is proud to offer the third annual Young Writers Institute to be held on the Gustavus Campus, August 2-5th, 2015. The curriculum is designed after successful academic summer institutes taking into account modifications in order to accommodate students entering grades 6-8 in the Fall 2015. If you want to develop a passion for reading and writing in a fun non-threatening academic setting, then this is the camp for you! Students will create (write and illustrate) their own short story and leave camp with a printed bound edition. Moreover, everyone at the camp will read the same short story and participate in daily book clubs—complete with snacks in a “coffee shop” environment. The Young Writers Institute is the perfect way to gear up for the school year. No previous writing experience is required. The first 50 applicants will be accepted.
