About the Program
The Gale Mosheim Summer Writing Program will provide a space where girls and boys can feel safe and encouraged as they explore and grow as writers. Each week will be filled with the freedom that creative writing provides. The mission is to provide children with the opportunity to grow and learn even when they are not in school — and to do so in a fun and creative way. With their imaginations and their trusted notebooks, they will learn by doing. Examining metaphor and personification while creating short stories; learning about voice and rhythm in poetry; discussing character and plot as they start to write their novels. Led by skilled teachers who are accomplished in their fields, and share a love of story telling. Daily activities will also be accompanied by different readings — stories, poems, and essays written by their true writing teachers, the authors who inspire their writing. In the afternoon, they will learn the basics of bookmaking — designing and making books in which to publish their writing.
