BOZEMAN--Registration is now open for Montana State University's Youth Writing Camp, to be held on the MSU campus July 10-13.

The program, hosted by the Yellowstone Writing Project, is a multi-day, creative writing workshop complete with walking field trips, writing games, guidance and feedback throughout the writing process. Participating students will write in multiple genres, sharing their writing within a supportive community of peers and certified educators.

The camp, which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, is open to students entering grades 5-12 in the fall. It is led by teachers and junior counselors from the Yellowstone Writing Project. Based in MSU’s Department of English, the Yellowstone Writing Project is comprised of teachers who write and writers who teach.

An evening reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 13, will allow parents to join their campers, along with the entire team, to celebrate the students’ creative writing.

Early registration is available for $150 per camper until April 26. After the 26th, the cost will be $175 and will remain open until the camp is filled. All campers will be provided a journal, extra writing utensils and a T-shirt as part of the registration cost.
