At Spark Young Writers Camp, young writers will tackle the empty page with the support and encouragement of professional authors and educators. They will find a shape for the story they’re trying to tell while gaining confidence in their own style. At the end of camp, everyone will leave with their work published in a collection of Spark stories!

Spark Young Writer’s Camp 2019 was a great success. Details for Spark 2020 are forthcoming. To be sure to receive information when it is released, please fill out the form below, including the name of the attendee, along with the name and contact information for a parent or guardian.
