The Countdown

It’s Here!

And we’re ready.  TT Patton’s summer writing programs are geared up for your  4th-7th grade poets, authors, and generally inspired kids to arrive!  This coming Monday, our first creative writing camp of 2015 will take off.  Our Pelikan fountain pens are flowing, moleskine journals  are stacked, and our custom cards are unpacked for your young ones to come and write with us.

Our Pelikan "Twist" pens are the perfect fountain pen for 4th-7th graders.  Size, style, and color? Check.

This week’s camp for 4th and 5th graders will feature lessons in prompt journaling, handwritten letter composition, and a variety of poetry exercises to stretch your child’s imagination.  We’ve prepped painting, performing, and lots of writing activities for our new, longer class sessions, and are ready to hit the ground running with hands-on applications of plot structure, character development, and even a slam poetry session.  We’ll write found poetry, haikus from dice, and my favorite, paint chip poetry!

The Home Depot may not have been too happy with me, but I know our TT Patton kids are going to love writing out verses on their favorite color!

Journaling, fiction, and non-fiction will come to life with role-play exercises, relatable stories and poems, and group activities that foster teamwork and creativity–read through the  7 Benefits of Writing Fiction your child could achieve with our classes!

We’ll also discuss the importance of writing and sending hand-written letters while mailing out our own on Day 4 of the program.  We’re especially excited about our “creative project” for the 2015 creative writing camps, and while we won’t spill all the beans just yet, we will say it involves bright colors and wise words.  Get excited and head to Big Cartel to register for one of our creative writing, short stories, or screenplay writing camps from now until August! And stay tuned for our blog posts with photos and exciting activities from our camp kids.

Happy Friday and happy writing,

Katie.
