Summer Writing Camps 2024

This year RAWK Summer Writing Camps are honoring Heroes in all their forms. From Super Heroes to historical activists and movement leaders and all the every day heroes in between. We’ll explore writing in various genres and from different perspectives according to the interests of the youth participating each week.

As weather permits, we will take walks to explore our neighborhood and look for inspiration while practicing our observational skills.

All participants will have their writing published in our annual summer anthology, receive a FREE personal copy of the anthology, and will be invited to share their work with the community at our end-of-the-summer publication release party – RAWK Reads.
