Greenrock Writers Retreat

Greenrock Writers Retreat is a virtual four-day camp for high school students with a passion for writing. Workshops are designed to encourage participants to view writing as both personally meaningful and pleasurable, as well as to improve student writing ability.

Students who are incoming ninth graders through outgoing twelfth graders in high school are invited to apply, regardless of writing proficiency. These participants will work with other young, aspiring writers as well as certified Red Cedar Writing Project (RCWP) Teacher-Consultants (TCs). RCWP TCs are experienced classroom teachers who have been identified as outstanding writing teachers by their colleagues and university faculty members.

As a Greenrock participant, you will work with a variety of teenagers from a multitude of high schools across Michigan. You will explore and improve your talents as a writer, both creatively and academically. Additionally, you will work with experienced college writers in order to enhance your own writing skills and participate in a novel study and discussion centered on the camp’s annual theme.

All inquiries should be directed to the Greenrock Writers Retreat directors at
