Summer Creative Writing Adventure
For Boys and Girls Ages 9-12

If you like to fool around with words and play on—and off—the page, this camp is for you!  In its fourth summer, this interactive creative writing “play-shop” is for kids who want to inspire 
and surprise themselves (and others)!  We tip words and connect broken bits of overheard conversation, black-out poems and fill-in 100 word stories.  We make magic word tickets
and homemade envelopes. Play with similes, metaphors, personification, and juxtaposition too. Come prepared to leave a trail of clues en route to the big blue box where we mail our
creations into the wider world. Limited to 20 participants.  Snacks, stamps, all writing materials, and take-home prompts included.

Karen Benke is the author of three popular books on creative writing, RIP THE PAGE! LEAP WRITE IN! and WRITE BACK SOON! Adventures in Letter Writing.
She has worked as a Poet in the Schools and is the founder of The Writers Nest, located in the Mill Valley Lumber Yard. A new book, RIP THE PAGE! An Action-Packed Adventure will be published in March, 2019 by Shambhala Publications.
