Write Your Novel BookCamp for Teens

Writing a novel is a lot like building a house... inside a black hole... with mismatched bricks and mortar made of beeswax and cantaloupe and fire. Which is to say, writing a novel is incredibly hard and different every time and the only way to learn how to write one is to try. In this one-week novel-writing bootcamp, we will take our best story-dreams and build them into novels. We will learn about character and conflict and setting and plot, but mostly we will write. This bootcamp is for any teen who thinks that sounds fun.
