Inkstains: The EMWP Summer Writing CampEvery summer dozens of young writers converge on the Student Center at Eastern Michigan University to attend Inkstains Summer Writing Camp. The first morning of camp is filled with the excited, cheerful greetings of campers who are delighted to see the familiar faces of other camp alumni, their summer buddies.
Here is what a few of our young writers had to say about what brought them to camp and keeps them coming back for more each summer:
"The camps is inspirational. It helps you learn from others to pump out pieces all week. The prompts are fantastic."
"[Inkstains] gives you an opportunity to sit down and write without any distractions. It's positive peer pressure."
"I've learned how to open up in my writing through Inkstains. I've found my voice, and I've learned to be objective about my work and other's work as well."
"[The] benefits are making friends, getting writing advice, and making connections."
"The people are super nice and you feel included...You get to learn what works for you. You get constructive criticism instead of, 'Oh, this is good!'"https://www.facebook.com/InkstainsSummerWritingCamp.
