Kenyon College, in Gambier, Ohio, is renown for its writing program. Their literary journal, The Kenyon Review, one of the country’s preeminent literary journals, sponsors a camp every summer for young writers ages 16-18.

Young Writers is an intensive two-week workshop for intellectually curious, motivated high-school students who value writing. Their goal is to help students develop their creative and critical abilities with language—to become better, more productive writers and more insightful thinkers. For more than eighteen years, Young Writers has provided a lively, supportive environment where students can stretch their talents, discover new strengths, and challenge themselves in the company of peers who share their interests.

If you’re wondering about majoring in a writing-related major in college (English, Journalism, Comparative Literature, etc.) attending a camp such as this is a good way to check out a college and what the courses in the major would be like.

Applications to The Kenyon Review Young Writers camps for 2010  will be available in January.  In the meantime, check out the website.
