NMSU summer writing camp now accepting applications for 7-12 graders

The Borderlands Writing Project in New Mexico State Universityís College of Arts and Sciences is accepting applications for its summer writing camp and fall and spring workshops through Wednesday, May 18.


The Ink Spilling, STEAMily (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Young Writers Summer Camp, and its affiliated school year workshops, are designed for students in grades 7-12. The summer camp will be held June 20-24 on the NMSU campus.

The purpose of the camp and workshops is to increase the studentís ability to make connections between learning and the types of writing they encounter in and out of school.

Subsequent workshops will build from the camp and progress the studentís thinking related to their selected projects. Corresponding workshops will take place in October, March 2017 and May 2017.

Summer camp activities include idea generating, writing across genres, performing and more. The camp will culminate in projects that expand the studentís understanding of writing for various subjects.

Students accepted for this summer camp and workshops will be eligible to receive a $200 stipend for their participation. The stipend will be distributed in two parts: $100 based on attendance in Juneís camp and Octoberís workshop, and the remaining $100 based on attendance in the March and May workshop and presentational event.
