UCLA Writing Project Summer Camp

June 21 – 24 & June 27 – July 1, 2022

9:00AM – 12:00PM online

Raquela Bases

Let your imagination lead the way this summer as you engage in the telling and writing of stories. Practice building new worlds as you write fantasy or science fiction. Write realistic fiction by getting into the head of interesting characters and then having those characters face conflicts similar to the challenges real kids face.

In our workshop, you will play with language so that your writing pops and your dialogue sounds real.  You will draft many short pieces  and polish some longer writing.  At the end of our two weeks together, you’ll select a few pieces to publish in our class anthology.

Join this workshop for fun, new friendships, and taking on the identity of writer.

Fee: $595

Registration is closed since we have reached capacity for this program.
