Looking for a fun experience during your spring break this year? Beam up to BYU’s Sci–Fi and Fantasy Youth Writing Camp. The camp is geared toward teens interested in blasting their writing into the next level by focusing on skills and techniques for their epic writing voyage. Students will learn how to develop ideas and characters, hone their voice, practice pacing, and tackle wibbily-wobbly, timey-wimey, time-travel principles. In writing circles, launchies will foster professional relationships with other young writers and learn to give and receive constructive feedback.
Bonus features include analyzing the style, world development, techniques, and character development of novel by a local author (included in tuition). Students will have a "close encounter" with that author in a special writing workshop.
Registration Deadline: March 31, 2015
The camp, sponsored by the Central Utah Writing Project, is taught by Heidi Preece and Rena Lesue-Smithey and is scheduled in the mornings during the week of spring break on BYU campus. It is for students entering 9 - 12 grade next year (or current seniors).
