To promote the joy of writing, the Greater Madison Writing Project (GMWP) runs several youth and community camps in the Dane County area. Our programs are for youth of all writing skill levels and concentrate on fostering creativity and activism. We also partner with local organizations, bringing our services to underserved homeless youth and their families.
This summer, GMWP will host three online writing camps for students entering grades five through twelve. Facilitated by experienced Greater Madison Writing Project teacher-leaders from across Wisconsin, each camp will meet synchronously online. See below for more information about this year’s camps.
