When the school year ends, the learning has just begun for young writers in Northwest Missouri. Every summer, the St. Joseph School District sponsors PLWP's elementary and middle school writing camps. For the month of June, the best writers (nominated by their teachers) from elementary and middle school spend their mornings on the campus of Missouri Western State University. Area teachers lead the campers in lessons and activities designed to improve, inspire, and ignite their writing.
For information about the 2011 summer writing camps offered by PLWP and the St. Joseph School District, contact Christie Leigan, PLWP Youth Program Director.
