Boot-camp for Young Writers

The 9.9 School of Communication offers high school students a unique opportunity to learn the craft of writing. The Young Writer’s Camp is designed to meet the needs of motivated students who like to write and who want to take part in stimulating classes in creative and expository writing in order to improve their communication skills.

Classes are designed to be academically challenging and help students develop the technical skills and creative thinking that are needed to be a good writer. Morning sessions focus on writing, while afternoon sessions focus on social and recreational activities that encourage creative thought.

Students work on assignments and projects, which may include newspaper features, short stories, character studies, journals, or short dramatic productions. Out-of-class work is frequently assigned for upcoming class activities. Classes are interactive, where written and verbal feedback—from both peers and instructors—help students learn to build on their strengths and work on their weaknesses in writing.

Students will get the opportunity to work on various formats, including :
  • Personal essay
  • Journalistic essay
  • Drama
  • Poetry
  • Blogging
  • Travel writing
  • Special sessions on writing for college applications for abroad
    The curriculum is designed for students who have average or above-average reading and writing abilities already and is not intended for students who need remedial help in English.

Program Highlights :

  • Instruction by an international faculty of professional writers and educators
  • Opportunity to explore different genres of writing, such as short fiction, poetry, journalism, and playwriting
