Does the thought of reading a new book excite you more than just about anything else? Then this half-day camp is for you!

In either session, ASFA’s award-winning Creative Writing faculty will introduce rising 6 – 8th grade students to the fundamentals of creative writing (poetry and prose), offer generative prompts, and provide constructive feedback.
