Campers will explore images, express feelings, and practice creative collaboration through poetry writing. Over the course of the week, we will read poetry, reflect on craft, keep journals, and write and revise both individual and group poems. Our last day will feature a poetry reading to which parents and friends are invited. Student work will be published in the Girls With Pens Anthology and blog.
