This summer I will be involved in two virtual summer camps for teens through Write Pittsburgh. These camps are free and open to teens age 13-18.
July 11-15 – Personal Narratives: Autonomy + Activism (M,W,F 11am-1pm via Zoom)
During this three-day camp, we will focus on using the power of personal narratives
(through writing and visual art) to explore our identities both internally and through
a social justice lens. Prompts will be given, but participants will get to choose their
artistic focus and medium and will be able to share their work with others.
July 25-Aug 5 – Sibs Write: A Creative Writing Camp by and for Teens who have Siblings with Disabilities (M-Th 10am-1pm via Zoom)
Are you a teen whose sibling has a disability? Then this camp is for you! Join us as we
write, play, and create community in a two-week virtual summer camp created by and for
teen sibs. You’ll get a chance to meet and talk with other sibs, read and write together,
and learn new creative skills like zine-making, blackout poetry, and blended collage.
This entire camp was conceived of and created by a Write Pittsburgh Teen Intern!
There are also camps I will not be involved in but are highly recommended, “Poetry, Poetry, Poetry!” and “Monsters of the Mon.”
