NMSU offers young writers camp for middle, high school students

New Mexico State University is hosting a summer camp titled ?Ink Spilling and Pixel Piling: An adventure for young writers.? The weeklong day camp runs from June 22-26. Workshops will include creative dramatics, poetry, creative nonfiction and short story writing.

This is the third year the Borderlands Writing Project and the English department in NMSU?s College of Arts and Sciences have sponsored the program, which gives writers from 7th ? 12th grades the opportunity to explore their abilities with professional writers.

Writers working as guest speakers this year include novelist David Holden, playwright Amy Lanasa, playwright David Spence, and writer, actor and director Monika Mojica.

?BWP's Ink Spilling and Pixel Piling is a writer's colony for young people,? said camp leader Amy Simpson, an English instructor at Arrowhead Park Early College High School. ?It's a creative and supportive space for students to pursue the kinds of writing they are interested in--not writing for a grade, or a teacher, or a test.?
