Gr. 6-8

Amerstate University and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, partner to help children to further their education. 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 passionately professional writing community. Teacher-Consultants (TCs) participate in an accredited, graduate-level Summer Institute, as well as smaller in-services throughout the year. What makes TCs unique is their pledge and dedication to writing. This passion includes creating new ways to inspire writers of all ages and a personal commitment to their own writing practices.

College for Kids/Teens’ partnership with the UWM Writing Project provides student writers an opportunity to work with three professionally and academically trained TCs per class. These instructors utilize materials from the National Writing Project to create a supportive and engaged writing community, which provides students with a week of invigorating writing experience.

College for Kids/Teens and the UWM Writing Project share the goal of community building, and the TCs selected to work each week are passionate writers from the Metro Milwaukee community.

The UWM Writing Project – Young Writers’ Academy

Back by popular demand, this University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project’s camp is for aspiring writers who are entering 6-8 grades. During the camp, writing groups meet each day. This camp is facilitated by TCs, experienced writers and teachers who are involved in the UWM Writing Project. These TCs have a goal of inspiring the imaginations and composition skills of young writers as well as a creative, supportive environment. While writers of all abilities are welcomed, we will focus on some introductory concepts as well as more nuanced, stylistic skills.

During the Young Writers’ Academy, student writers:

  • Explore a variety of genres, including poetry, short fiction, essay/nonfiction writing, and more.
  • Receive individual instruction and feedback in small groups from UWM Writing Project TCs.
  • Learn introductory and foundational writing techniques used by professional writers.
  • Meet and share writing with young writers from across the state and country.
  • Engage in the entire writing process: brainstorming, drafting, revising and editing.

Because this writing academy is sponsored by the UWM Writing Project, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher-to-student ratios (one instructor for every five to six students). This provides us the opportunity to build an authentic rapport with student writers, which ultimately allows us to foster a stronger writing community.

The Young Writers’ Academy culminates in a celebration of writing at the end of the week, in which students are encouraged to share their favorite pieces. New and returning participants are welcomed.

Gr. 9-12

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.

Sponsored by the UWM 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 introduce writing activities that are fun, helpful and inspiring to the imagination.

During the Introductory Teen Writing Academy, student writers:

  • Explore concepts from three genres, including poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction/essay.
  • Choose two genres and produce polished writing 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 (one instructor for every five to six 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 earlier work but will spend the week focusing on new writing projects that fit within our three genres.
