Course Description

The camp is an award-winning academic summer school that offers programs for students aged 16 to 18 in prestigious academic institutions. The goal of this program is to give academically rigorous content that expands participants' knowledge and love for their chosen field. The program also provides young varied and essential views into what it would be like to study at university through 40 hours of academic sessions over the two week. Individual work, referred to as the "Personal Project" in this curriculum, is required. This is usually an essay or a presentation given on the last day of the program. Participants will get comments on their work, which may be included the final assessment of the participant. The Creative Writing program is aimed to enhance participants' existing writing abilities earned in a regular classroom setting and via their own practice. Through a series of activities, participants are encouraged to delve deeper into new techniques and to expand the diversity and complexity of their own writing. Participants will have created a portfolio of excerpts or short tales based on a variety of writing approaches and subjects by the conclusion of the program, showcasing the range of their writing abilities.

Example Modules

  • An Introduction To Creative Writing: In this introductory module, you will challenge conventional assumptions of writing in the 21st Century. You'll have the opportunity to discuss preferred writing methods and routines, what you hope to achieve on the programme and learn how to combat the dreaded blank page.
  • **The Importance Of Character: **From Sherlock Holmes to Jay Gatsby, it is often believed that great characters drive great fiction. In this module, you will assess the clichés and tropes of a range of comedic and conflicted characters, as well as analysing how they can shift the tone and plot of a piece of work.
  • **Learning The Industry: **The Basics: The very best of authors with a finished manuscript can still experience setbacks from not knowing how the publishing industry works. In this module, you will learn about the various publishing options, from competitions, magazines and traditional publishing, to e-books, self-publication and film writing.
  • Written Portfolio: Over the duration of the programme, you will have written either a portfolio of creative writing or a novella. In the final module of the programme, you'll have time to complete your works and be given personal written and verbal feedback from your tutor to aid future development as a writer.
