View Website

Emerging Writers Institute creative writing camp is a one or two-week summer writing program for teens. Rising 7th-12th graders experience a unique curriculum designed to develop and support students' imaginative writing across literary genres. This creative writing summer program encourages students to challenge themselves technically and artistically through guided daily writing workshops, one on one instructor evaluations, group editing sessions, and creative presentations of their work. Moreover, the participants in the program will be uniquely positioned to profit from the literary culture of the San Francisco Bay Area. By the program's conclusion, students will produce and perfect quality pieces suitable for publication in their own literary magazine and professional teen publications.

Students select a major focus area called a Writer's Block. In each Writer's Block, they will read classic and contemporary examples of the genre, craft and hone their writing composition, and prepare to present their piece to an audience of readers and listeners. This year's Writer's Blocks include:

  • Short and Sweet: Short Story Seminar
  • Well-Versed: Poetry Seminar
  • The Wright Stuff: Playwright's Seminar
  • The Real Word: Nonfiction Seminar

Diverse afternoon workshops in nontraditional writing genres, such as speech writing, zine creation, graphic novels, journalism, nature writing, and advertising copy will engage participants when they are not working on their principal piece. Furthermore, the program recruits guest speakers from the publishing industry and Bay Area authors to give readings and answer questions about literary life and labor.
