                                  The UWM Writing Project – Introductory Teen Writing Academy

                                  Gr. 9-12

                                  The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project is an active chapter of the National Writing Project (NWP). Founded in 1974, NWP’s ongoing mission is to provide writing teachers resources and training in order to cultivate new methods of teaching, research on teaching, and a professional community passionate about writing. Teacher-Consultants (TCs) participate in an accredited, graduate level Summer Institute, as well as smaller in-services throughout the year.

                                  College for Kids/Teens’ partnership with the UWM Writing Project results in offering student writers a chance to work with three professionally and academically trained TCs per class. These instructors utilize materials from the Writing Project to shape a classroom of supportive learning.

                                  The UWM Writing Project – Introductory Teen Writing Academy

                                  Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project, this writing class is designed specifically for teen students who are interested in practicing writing across three genres: Fiction, Poetry, and Non-Fiction/Essay. These classes are facilitated by experienced writers and teachers—trained Teacher-Consultants with the UWM Writing Project—who will introduce writing activities that are fun, helpful, and inspiring to the imagination.

                                  During the Introductory Teen Writing Academy, student writers will:

                                  • Explore concepts from three genres, including poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction/essay
                                  • Choose two genres and produce polished written pieces
                                  • Learn writing techniques used by professional writers
                                  • Receive individual instruction and response in small groups
                                  • Cultivate an initial writing process: brainstorming, free writing, drafting, and revising
                                  • Celebrate writing with a culminating community event designed to share writing with parents, teachers and peers

                                  Since this is a writing academy sponsored by the UWM Writing Project, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher-to-student ratios (1 instructor for every 5 or 6 students). This allows us the opportunity to know writers as individuals and foster a stronger writing community.

                                  This camp is open to all students, grades 9-12, who are interested in writing, even if they have not participated in other writing programs (some background in writing is welcomed and encouraged but not mandatory). Students can bring previous work but will spend the week focusing on new writing projects that fit within our three genres.
