Voice and Narrative Camp - CLOSED
Time & Location
About the Camp
In this one-week camp, girls will learn the art of inquiry, compassionate listening, and mindful observation to craft powerful narratives. They will discover and strengthen their distinctive voices, as well as gain confidence and experience in personal writing, while building their capacity for self-advocacy and self-compassion.
This camp packs in fun and learning. We will incorporate games, lively discussions, mindfulness, field trips, guest speakers, and exploration of how images complement words. We will take time each day for some writing and reflection. Throughout the camp, students will work through the revision process and workshop their writing in groups as well as one-on-one with instructors.
During field trips, students will gather stories of women (prescreened) and will have the option to photograph the subjects. They will begin to develop an ear for dialogue and an eye for detail — critical to strong narratives. Students will work on short pieces in a style of their choice —biographical writing (from interviews they conduct), creative writing (either inspired by interviews, their own lives, or pure fiction), or memoir/ autobiography. They may choose any of these styles, or a mix, to create poems, short stories, and/or essays. Students will create short pieces that they can feel proud of. Students can choose to have their own photograph taken to accompany their narrative. After the session, students can choose one or more of these narratives to showcase locally and/ or publish on our site.
