2017 Writing Camps
July 31–August 4
College: It's in your future. But at this point, it's a strange and foreign place, with strange people having strange and exciting conversations. At this writing camp, we'll help you learn to speak the language that will get you into college by helping you tell your academic story for admissions committees. You'll also get your writing passport stamped in various college domains by learning to write like a scientist, an art critic, a social scientist, a creative writer, and an informed citizen. Brian Jackson, coordinator of University Writing at BYU, will take students on a journey across writing domains. College-bound writers who come to Storm the Gates! will be more prepared to write themselves into college and develop a voice once there.
