Do you dream of making a difference in your community? Do you want to be a modern day superhero? Did you know the pen is mightier than the sword?

Coming soon to a galaxy really, really close to you - yours! Be a WONDER WOMAN (or MAN!) Take on a FANTASTIC idea and solve it in a FLASH. Be a writing AVENGER for the homeless, the bullied, the environment. Take on a problem, find your passion, and HULK up with a deep knowledge and understanding. Bounce ideas off of your writing peers, then use your pen like THOR's hammer to spread the word and change the world.

This camp will provide participants with an opportunity to choose and research a cause, participate in online discussions and online editing with peers and instructors, and produce and publish a polished essay that will support a cause.


July 11-22, 2016


Fully online, some online interactions will be at set times but most will not. Most set times will be determined after the start of camp.
