Inkstains: Summer Writing Camp at EMU

Aimee Grant

As we gaze out our windows into the wintry white and daydream about what the color green looks like, escape the polar vortex by penciling in some fun summer plans. Go ahead and get out the calendar. Flip, flip, flip ahead until you set your sights on July. Why not fill in some of those blank boxes with a week at Inkstains?

Inkstains summer writing camp is: sitting in the cool shadow of a tall sculpture during a writing marathon, pencil scribbling across the page of your marbled covered notebook; hearing the click clack of keyboards blogging away, posting writing, and cheering other writers on; feeling the warm applause of camp friends, family members, and teachers as you stand before them to proudly read your published piece.

Inkstains is the camp you go to because you love writing, and you want to be surrounded by other book-lovin’, stubby pencil using, writer’s notebook carrying teens. So, if you are a first-timer or returning alumna, come spend a week of your break on Eastern’s beautiful campus. Immerse yourself in an environment of like-minded authors and bibliophiles. We hope to see you this July.

The Inkstains middle school camp is for incoming grades 6-8, and it runs July 7-11. The high school camp is for incoming grades 9-12, and it is July 14-18. The application deadline, with a discounted tuition rate, is June 14, 2014. You can download the application here. For more information, check out our camp page at the EMWP website or contact camp co-director Kimberly Pavlock at or 734-487-4220.
