Each week from June 25th- July 27th 2018, Jen will lead your writing with strategies centered around a specific goal and genre. During the camp, Jen will guide you through each step in the process from generating ideas to editing and finally celebrating your writing! Join in for just one week, or stay for the whole summer—it’s up to you.

Each day of camp, Monday through Friday, will begin with a 5 minute mini-lesson from Jen herself, followed by suggested writing time of 10 minutes. After that there will be time to share your reflections with Jen and the other teachers in the group. Spend as little as 10 minutes a day writing or as much time as you’d like! Join from the poolside, beach chair, backyard. And if you can't make a session, fret not! All sessions will be posted in the group for you to go back to any time you'd like, so if you miss one you can always catch up.


Here is each week of camp broken down by genre:

June 25-29 2018: Fictional Narrative

July 2-6 2018: Poetry

July 09-13 2018: Article/Blog Post

July 16-20 2018: Persuasive Letter

July 23-27 2018: Open Genre/Reading Like a Writer


This is a great chance to spend some time on your own writing along side your fellow educators, and to experience The Writing Strategies from the perspective of the student!
