Inkstains 2011: Inviting and Inspiring Teens to Write

Kimberly Pavlock, TC ‘92

With spring finally here, students and their families are looking ahead to the end of the school year and searching for rewarding, fun, and affordable summer activities. Inkstains, the EMWP Summer Writer’s Camp for middle and high school students, is a wonderful opportunity for young writers to come together on EMU’s campus to write, share, and publish their writing.
In collaboration with Aimee Grant, Director of Youth Programs, EMWP TCs Natalie Tomlin, Sean Eldon and Alli Kaplan will teach middle school students entering grades 6-8 the week of July 11-15. EMWP TCs Amie VanHorn, Sean Eldon, and Alli Kaplan will teach high school students entering grades 9-12 the week of July 18-22.

During the camp, students learn drafting, revising, and editing strategies and have opportunities to write in a variety of genres. In addition to receiving a journal and t-shirt, students will also receive a copy of an anthology with select writings published from the students’ work during the week.
The middle and high school camps each meet for one week: Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. – 12 Noon. The cost for students to attend Inkstains is $140.
Registration is already underway, but we still have plenty of spots available for interested students. Please CLICK HERE for a copy of the Inkstains 2011 brochure to share with your students. You may contact Kim Pavlock (kpavlock@emich.edu) for more information.
