UPDATE FROM RCWP REGARDING COVID-19:

At Red Cedar Writing Project, as well as Michigan State University, we are concerned first and foremost with the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff. On April 2, Michigan State University made the decision to postpone all face-to-face programs for summer 2020 in conjunction with canceling all in-person classes for summer semester at MSU.

Spartan Writing Camp

 

2020 SUMMER CAMPS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19

 

Since 1994, Spartan Writing Camp has invited elementary and middle school writers to explore their love of writing with countless opportunities to write about the thoughts, ideas and experiences that move them. Camp instructors, who are experienced teachers and Red Cedar Writing Project (RCWP) Teacher Consultants (TCs), help students nurture and develop the writer within using Michigan State’s campus for inspiration. Each summer campers search for stories and capture memories on visits to the Red Cedar River, Michigan State University’s beautiful gardens, the Dairy Store, museums and other places around campus.

All inquiries should be directed to Jill Hoort at swc@msu.edu.
