Teen Summer Camp: Into The Deep
4 Tuesdays: August 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th (3-5pm)
This online summer creative camp is a role-playing adventure that uses collaborative storytelling (both written and oral) for character development and exploration that goes far beyond the page.
Part Sci-Fi adventure, part Alt-history, part thriller, the world of this program is based on the novella “The Deep” by Rivers Solomon, and the song of the same name by experimental hip hop group, clipping. Become a character, and challenge yourself to new depths.
Young writers will learn about character development, there will be math and science tie ins, and even some persuasive tactics involved! Each day will include writing time, game-play time, and reflection time, and at the end of the month, excerpts from the first person, character driven writing that young writers create will be compiled into a (digitally available) collection. If they’d like to add to their writing between sessions, that’s awesome! (but not required.)
This camp is a collaboration with Teach Write Now.
