Camp WITS Registration Is Now Open!

Join us for the inaugural year of Camp WITS: Writers in the Summer, part of our WITS (Writers in the Schools) program. Camp WITS will consist of two weeks of half-day creative writing workshops that focus on a range of genres and techniques, open to students entering 2nd through 12th grades.

Camp WITS: Writers in the Summer
July 25 – August 5
Grades 2-12


Camp WITS brings the inspiring and accomplished Seattle writers who teach comics, stories and poems in public schools throughout the year to the light-filled rooms of the School of Visual Concepts in downtown Seattle. Camp attendees will learn new ways to express their own authentic voices, join a community of young writers from across the city, create letterpress portfolios for their new work and end the camps with a celebratory reading open to family and friends.

Camp WITS is open to all experience levels and abilities, from new to seasoned writers. Sessions are taught by two acclaimed WITS Writers-In-Residence and are limited to 20 students each.
