Participants will explore story and character development, discuss different styles of illustration, gain an understanding of the drawing process, and use their findings to create their very own picture book.

What is it like to attend a Denver Writes Summer Writing Camp?
These camps are for kids, like you, who like to write. You don’t have to be good at writing, you certainly don’t have to get good grades in writing, and we accept all kinds of handwriting, but you have to LIKE TO WRITE. Otherwise, things might be a drag.
This year all of our camps will be held at Second Star to the Right Books, 1455 S. Pearl Street. We will go on field trips to places around the neighborhood and throughout Denver to get inspired to express ourselves in positive ways with the best words we can find.
Also, we publish a summer camp anthology that you help author. We want you to see new things, think new thoughts, and then write new stories to share with the world.
Join us, if you dare. Space is limited!
