Free online summer camp for kids: book writing for teens

I planned to spend my summer indoors quietly catching up on my backlist of YA fantasy and scifi novels and maybe doing a bit of book editing. But I’ve also been wishing I had a way to help out more and share my expertise.

I practically grew up at summer camps, spending 3 months a year for almost a decade deep in the woods teaching basketry, canoeing or wilderness survival, but this summer of course will be different – for a lot of people.

So I set up a free online writing program designed especially for kids and teens, based on the practical writing materials I’ve developed over the last few years (which have received millions of views and helped thousands of writers publish their books).

If you’re looking for a free online summer camp filled with challenging activities that will keep your kids engaged, creative and develop critical writing skills, look no further. Just click below to sign them up for free at your best email.

– June 1st ~ August 31st with weekly lessons.
– $500 writing contest to keep them motivated
– Suggested age range of 9~19, though even mature authors will find this free course useful at writing better fiction.
