This summer, the IWU Division of Modern Language and Literature will be offering a Summer Writing Camp segment of the Wildcat Summer Academy! In writing workshops, students will create original works of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and more. Campers will spend the week exploring their own voices as they put pen to paper.

Campers can expect to have a great deal of time to focus on creating and writing while receiving feedback, encouragement, and guidance from IWU faculty. During the day, campers will spend time in college - like classes with IWU faculty members studying various elements of creative writing. During the evenings, all students from the Wildcat Summer Academy will unite for games and activities which will conclude with nightly corporate worship.

Throughout the week, the campers will have an opportunity to interact with other School of Arts and Humanities camps: Music, Art, and Theatre, to explore various creative interests outside of writing.

We hope you will join us this June for IWU Writing Camp as a part of the third annual Wildcat Summer Academy!
