Camp Details

We live in a creative world where ideas, collaboration, and adaptability are a must–and writing is essential. So how do we prepare our children for their future? How do we ensure that they become thoughtful leaders for change, passionate learners, and curious thinkers we need to improve our world? Through Writers in the Schools programs, young people discover the power within themselves to create, innovate, and connect with others.

WITS programs work because we approach writing as an exploration. Students will begin to see feel the power that comes for clear self-expression. Whether they’re not sure how to get started or they already write a million pages a day, they’ll feel at home writing here. This is where the spark of creativity begins.

The Only Place Where Children Learn from Talented Writers and Educators
Many have Masters and PhDs in education. Others are award-winning writers, nationally-ranked performers, and widely-published poets. Our instructors are experts at teaching creative writing. And they’re ready to help your child shine.

Creative Writing Camp – Creative Writing Camp is a collaboration between Writers in the Schools and Rice University’s School Literacy and Culture and has inspired young writers for over 30 years. Our online and in-person camps deep dive into writing topics that hone creativity and prepare students for future success. With low student-teacher ratios and mentorship from professional writers, Creative Writing Camp offers a writer’s workshop experience!
