    First of all, if you’re a teen who likes to write, keep at it, and don’t let anyone tell you different. (And if you’re the parent of a teen who likes to write, please encourage them.)

    With the above in mind, the Miami Book Fair is offering a virtual summer camp for teens who like to write, running July 24-29. According to MBF site:

    “Speak Up! Summer Camp” is a six-day virtual creative writing camp for students in grades 6-12 to brainstorm activities, craft exercises, and engage in workshops established by poets and fiction writers. Campers will participate daily in master classes with best-selling authors, sponsored by Miami Book Fair at Miami-Dade College. A licensed therapist and writer will help students explore connections between mental health and the creative writing process, utilizing creative writing prompts alongside meditation exercises.

    This is a great opportunity for the young writer in your life!
