EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education will offer a Summer Writing Camp for aspiring writers in grades 7-10. The camp will be held from 9 a.m.-noon June 24-28 on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

The writing camp will explore storytelling in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Students will create written and digital stories in styles and subjects of their choice. Unique classes include a "writing crawl" around Eau Claire, creative writing scavenger hunts, digital narratives using the latest iPad applications, peer review and one-on-one mentoring. Students' best writing will be compiled and published in a camp chapbook.

Dr. Carey Applegate, UW-Eau Claire assistant professor of English, will lead the instructional team of faculty, teachers, community professionals and college students. The camp curriculum is aligned with Wisconsin's Common Core State Standards for Writing.

The course fee is $169, which includes 15 hours of instruction and a copy of the camp chapbook. Full scholarships are available for students with financial need.
