Campers in the creative writing summer camps will explore several genres — poetry, short fiction, and playwriting — through a variety of writing exercises and adventures conducted on the Bentley Campus and the surrounding area. Students will have the opportunity to refine their voices, find greater specificity in their language, and share their creative discoveries with the rest of the group. Our work together will culminate in a student showcase where students will have the opportunity to either read poetry/fiction or cast their peers in a rehearsed presentation of their dramatic play. As campers learn to offer and solicit positive feedback, the creative writing summer camp provides an excellent opportunity for rising Middle Schoolers to model the dynamics of open discussion utilized by English classes at the Bentley Upper School.
