Enrolled students will write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction with 916 Ink staff and volunteers. Through the course of their workshops your student will choose 2-3 pieces of creative writing to have published in an anthology of student work. Each student will receive 2 free copies of their book, to be presented at a book release and reading party approximately 8 weeks after the program is complete. Friends and family are invited to attend! Lastly, we publish a professional book and throw a book release party approximately 5 weeks after the summer camp, where students are celebrated by their teachers, family, and friends. Each student receives two free books and each book is available for sale online.
