Campers create their own graphic novels! Over the course of the week, campers will learn the full process of graphic novel design, including script writing, panel creation, drawing, and inking. All campers will be published in the Girls With Pens Anthology (included in the price of the camp) and on the blog.
Carolyn Cohagan began her writing career on the stage. She has performed stand-up and one-woman shows at festivals around the world from Adelaide to Edinburgh. Her first novel, The Lost Children (Simon & Schuster, 2010) is a middle grade fantasy which became part of the Scholastic Bookclub and was nominated for a Massachusetts Children’s Book Award. Her YA Time Zero trilogy (Girls With Pens, 2016-2020) has won over ten literary honors, including the 2017 Readers Favorite Award and the 2017 International Book Award. In 2020, she and her mother, painter Lynn Cohagan, collaborated on the Creative Writing Journal: Clever Prompts for Clever Children. Carolyn is the founder of Kids With Pens, a creative writing organization in Austin dedicated to fostering the individual voices and offbeat imaginations of kids ages 8-15.
Please provide your camper with a drink and snack each day.
If meeting in person does not seem safe at the time of this camp, it will switch to an on-line event.
