Creative Writing Camp for high school students set for Sept. 24

Talented high school students are welcome to register for �The Sorcerer�s Apprentice: A Creative Writing Camp,� to be held Saturday, Sept. 24, at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. The Dakota Writing Project (DWP), a local teachers' organization affiliated with the National Writing Project, and the Vermillion Literary Project (VLP), an award-winning student organization, are hosting the one-day camp, with assistance from Prairie Winds.

The camp, which will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., includes workshops on short fiction, poetry, art-inspired creative writing, theatrical writing, revision, performance, and poetry slam, to be followed by a public reading in Farber Hall. No experience with creative writing is necessary.

The registration fee includes a day of workshops, a camp t-shirt, lunch, refreshments during breaks, and a copy of the VLP magazine. The regular registration fee is $60, but if students register by Sept. 12, the fee is only $50. A limited number of reduced-fee scholarships based on financial need are available; email dwp@usd.edu for information. The registration form, descriptions of the workshops, and additional details are available online at http://tinyurl.com/dwpcamp . Please note that registration for the camp requires a nomination by a teacher or school administrator.

This is the sixth year of the Sorcerer�s Apprentice Camp. Last year, student writers from South Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska participated in the camp.
