Students learn from experienced and effective classroom teachers and have access to computers at Ball State University. They participate in a creative workshop experience writing stories, poems, and essays taking a close look at the power of word choice, voice, organization, sentence fluency, organization, and presentation. Students develop their writing skills as they spend time immersed in the writing process and receive personalized feedback through participation in peer response groups, teacher conferences and author's chair.
Comp Camp workshops are offered ten Saturday sessions during Spring semester (Feb.-April) and two weeks in the summer (June).
Indiana Writing Project reserves the right to cancel the workshop or class because of insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances. If a workshop or class is cancelled, students are notified before the scheduled starting date of the workshop or class.
No amount will be refunded once a student attends at least one session of camp.
