July 10-14 & 17-21
Morning Session: 9AM – 12PM
Each morning we’ll meet on the University of Montana campus to write, share and play with words. Each students will receive with their own Writing Kit (notebook & pencils) and the opportunity to work closely with Missoula Writing Collaborative instructors. We’ll visit the Montana Museum of Art and Culture to write ekphrastic poetry, take our notebooks outside to write around campus, and have lots of time to explore the world of words together.
Our week culminates with a reading on campus on Friday at 12PM.
PLUS: Each student will receive a copy of the 2017 Words With Wings anthology (with their own writing inside!) and the chance to read at the Montana Book Festival in September 2017.
Full Day Camp: 9AM – 5PM
Our full day sessions offer an opportunity for students to build on their morning experience. We’ll explore the Missoula community and its varied ecosystems by foot and bus. These excursions provide guided opportunities for developing writers to observe and write about the world around them. This year we’ll visit and learn about:
- Historic Fort Missoula
- The kitchens at Caffe Dolce for pasta making and gelato
- The Clark Fork River with the Watershed Education Network
- and more!
Students need to pack their own lunch, but snacks will be provided throughout the day.
