Your interests. Your stories. Your camp.

Immerse yourself in a weeklong writing experience at UW-Eau Claire!  We’ll explore storytelling in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Then you’ll choose subjects and styles that interest you to create written and digital stories of your own.

Each day, you’ll attend unique writing classes to inspire your ideas.
  • Take a “writing crawl” around campus and downtown Eau Claire.
  • Go on a creative-writing scavenger hunt.
  • Build digital narratives using the latest software and iPad applications.
  • Work with a Volume One staffer to write about a local event or venue.

You’ll also work with peers and a writing mentor – a professor, teacher or college student – to enrich and improve your writing. Each student will submit a favorite piece of writing to publish in our camp chapbook and you’ll take home a copy to remember your camp experience.

THIS PROGRAM IS ALIGNED WITH WISCONSIN’S COMMON CORE STANDARDS FOR WRITING.
