Margaret Mitchell House writing camps provide an opportunity for youth to discover the power and excitement of writing while honing their skills in a fun, interactive environment. With 10-15 participants per camp, each young author receives individual attention while learning how to create meaningful prose through a variety of techniques like stream-of-consciousness writing, games, journaling, free verse poetry, and other forms.
*Registration ends the Thursday prior to the camp start date. We do not perform Day-of-Camp registrations.*
**Campers must be within the age range for each camp at the time of the camp, without exception.**
