RAWK’s Summer Writing Camps are going online/virtual, providing Kalamazoo County 4th-12th graders with positive and meaningful opportunities to write creatively about the profound social and cultural shifts we’re experiencing.
By working in various writing genres and exploring the significance of language and narrative, students will write about facing the uncertainties that challenge them, the difficult truths of the past still haunting the present, and how our strengths can help to create a safer future for everyone.
Each camper will meet virtually with the Camp leader and two assistants (summer interns) daily during one of three 40-minute group sessions. In addition, each camper will have a 20-minute individual session with one of the assistants during the latter half the week to discuss their ideas and writing in further detail for positive feedback and constructive suggestions for revision.
Students will be able to choose which Group and Individual Session time works best for them, and their writing will be published in this year’s summer anthology as we continue to support and amplify voices and experiences of Kalamazoo youth.
