Write From The Heart Youth Summer Camp

Melissa Greene, professional writer and writing coach, will lead her yearly camp for teens, ages 13 to 17, on July 22, 23 and 26; and children, ages 9 to 12, on August 5, 6 and 9. Sessions run from 1 to 3 p.m. Taught with compassion, warmth and humor, her workshops emphasize the wonder and excitement of writing, not the rules. 


Greene’s camps are slow-paced and soul-centered, gentle and non-intimidating. There are no grades, tests, competition or judgment. Without the distraction of technology, young people discover inspiration in everyday surroundings, the importance of wonder and play in the creative process and how kindness and fun help to ease perfectionism and self-doubt.   


“When young people can enjoy uninterrupted free writing about topics that excite them, they become happier, and more confident writers, both in school and out,” enthuses Greene.
