Carleton Creative Writing Camps

Carleton University is pleased to announce its new summer creative writing camps for children and teens. These camps will give young writers a chance to explore their creativity with Ottawa writers and an Aboriginal storyteller over the course of one week. Campers will compose a poem, tell stories, pen a comic, and work on a videogame narrative. They will also have a chance to share their work with the group.
