Safari Writing Camp!


Student plots out a choose your own adventure story.

From June 29 to July 4 I taught at the CWC Safari-themed creative writing camp. This was quite the adventure, with fellow instructors Lee Edward Fodi and Kallie George. We began the camp with an introductory video, shot by Luke Spence Byrd, and set the tone for a week of imagination.

My part in this was to teach choose your own adventure, traps and dangers, hidden cities and strange, musical instruments. To set the students up for a writing project, we often did a craft,. Here are some of the traps my students crafted:


A giant slingshot found deep in the jungle!


Student crafts a catapult.


Students hard at work writing their stories.
