* Positively Expository Two-Week Intensive: Class provides middle and high school students loads of practice with sentence and paragraph construction. Students will annotate and summarize a variety of short texts and learn to craft exemplary paragraphs. M-F June 28-July 9 10-11:30 $650

- So many students find themselves in middle and high school English classes without a strong writing foundation.  This class focuses on the nuts and bolts that may have missed along the way.  

* One-Week Creative Writing Bootcamps: Loosely-themed sessions, designed for 4th graders and up, offer an opportunity for vigorous and joyful engagement. Sign up for one or all three. $300/session

              Sports/Humor - Wild mishaps occur when story protagonists use sports equipment differently than expected!  July 5, 7 & 9        12-2:00

              Music - Did you hear that? Voices, nature sounds and instruments provide the soundtrack for an unusual adventure.  July 12, 14 & 16        3:30-5:30

             Fantasy/SciFi - When student-created worlds defy the limits of science and history, anything can happen!  July 19, 21 & 23       2-4:00

- In each bootcamp, students will write an autobiographical paragraph, a short story and a free verse poem.  We will meet for two hours on Mon., Wed. & Fri., and students will work on their pieces at home on Tues. & Thurs.  In the past, I've had students read their work aloud to a group of doting parents on the final day.  This year, I may have to film the readings and send them to parents.  It's always exciting to see what students come up with in a short, fast-paced session. 

* College Application Essay Workshop: Over the course of five Thursdays, rising seniors will get a jump on their college applications by reviewing strong sample essays and drafting their own Common App essays. Early preparation alleviates future anxiety. July 8, 15, 22, 29 & Aug. 5      4:30-6:00     $350

- Filing out college applications is stressful.  This workshop will get college-bound students thinking about how to represent themselves well, in writing, to the  schools of their choice.
