Writing Summer Camp for Teens

Stuck indoors all summer? Need a long term, creative project to keep you busy? How about writing a book? Yes it’s possible – I’ve had received emails from dozens of teens about how to write and publish their very own novel, and even coached a 10 year old through this fantasy plotting. 

Don’t let all those ideas bouncing around go to waste – write them down and share them!

For summer 2020, I’m putting together a short video series and challenge meant to help teens outline, draft and polish their novel – with all the encouragement and structure they need. To make things more interesting, we’re looking for one great story to offer a $500 publishing deal.

But even if you don’t win, we recommend joining the Nanowrimo young writer’s program or putting your words up on Wattpad for the 2020 Watties. Practicing in public is a great way to get feedback.
