Course Description

The camp is an award-winning academic summer school that offers programs for students aged 13 to 15 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. Creative writing is a topic that combines creativity with attention to detail, novel ways of expression, and a rich history of previous examples from which to draw inspiration. Not just in the literary realm, but also in a wide range of commercial and business situations, the ability to generate interesting and innovative material is highly valued. The Creative Writing program's goal is to expose participants to the fundamentals of the topic and to emphasize the options open to those who want to continue creative writing in the future. Participants will gain experience in a number of practical skills as they examine their own and their peers' work.

Example Modules

  • The Blank Page: Beginning a creative project can often be daunting, even for experienced writers. During this module, you will look at various techniques for overcoming the fear of the blank page, including a range of warm-up exercises and quick-fire short assignments, as well as gaining inspiration from the work of other writers.
  • **Character Creation: **Creating a character who lives beyond the page is one of the biggest challenges for an author. In this module, you will discover a variety of techniques for building a memorable character. From creating CVs and family trees to 'mapping' relationship networks in order to identify potential sources of conflict in their lives.
  • **Plot Mapping: **With a fresh understanding of how to build character, dialogue and much more, you will turn your attention to the plot. In this module, you'll address the importance of moulding ‘tension points’ and ‘turning points’ in our stories, as well as the creative possibilities of ‘plot twists’.
  • 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.
