Writers Block is a creative writing summer camp, for young writers ages 12-18, that we host for two weeks in July (after Independence Day) at The Writers Place.
This year, Writers Blocks will be held July 9-13 and 16-20, 9am to 12pm, at 3607 Pennsylvania, KCMO 64111. Campers will focus on poetry and performance, and at the end of camp we’ll celebrate with a reading for family and friends.
Register for one week of camp, or sign up for both weeks and get a great discount! Be sure to check back often for news and updates about our teachers, activities, and more!
Donations are accepted to help with scholarships.
Why do we do it? Simple:
- To encourage young writers (that’s you!) to build community
- To give you the opportunity to talk with publishing poets and writers
- To expose you to a writing workshop environment
- To help you discover and/or develop a writing process that works for you
- To create a safe space to practice giving and receiving feedback
- To provide you with uninterrupted time to think, write and be inspired!!
