7th & 8th Grade Students: Writing in the Middle
July 6 9:00 am - July 17 12:00 pm
July 6 – 17, 2020
9:00AM – 12:00PM at UCLA
Instructor: Taiesha Fowler
Writing in the Middle is designed for middle school students who have lots of energy, opinions and questions. During these two weeks we’ll focus on writing in a variety of genres—personal narratives, writing based on sources, essays with attitude and poetry/spoken word. We’ll play with voice and style, and everyone will benefit from plenty of choice within a collaborative writing workshop structure. We invite you to join us for two weeks of reading, talking, drafting, writing—and more writing!
We are able to offer a limited number of needs-based scholarships.
