Summer Writing Camp

Summer 2017 Writing Camp

Going to camp is always fun, even if you aren’t the outdoorsy type.  Your son or daughter will find the same can be true with Inspiring’s Writing Camp this summer.  Whether students enjoy writing or don’t, our instructor has a series of activities that will get them to enjoy finding apt words, creating engaging prose, and organizing for effect.  

Cathy Colglazier, former English chair at McLean HS and TJHSST, will lead students for 3 hours each day in creative non-fiction projects.  Often the class will visit locations around McLean for inspiration as well as read short articles and stories that provide good models for writing.  Basics of solid exposition will be covered — punctuation, grammar, diction — as well as development of style.  

If students are planning on applying to TJ or a private school, this workshop is ideal for getting them ready for personal essays.   Target ages:  7th to 10th grade.

Three options for camp:
