Course Description

This class will explore the written word using creative approaches, such as visual writing prompts, to discover and explore character development, build description through observation, expand the use of figurative language, and promote journal writing. Participants will delve into different genres and styles of writing, including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, picture books, and graphic novels. Camps will feature visits by professionally published authors who are valued participants in the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia Writers in the Schools program, and have in-depth experience working with tweens and teens. Classes will be a mixture of classroom activities and outdoors adventures to promote physical activity and imaginative play.
