More Information on the Creative Writing Summer Camp 2009 in DFW area!

Dear Parents:

Thank you for expressing an interest in my Creative Writing camp this year. It is parents like you who support the cause and keep teachers like me motivated to do more! It speaks volumes about how much you care for your children and their education.

Just a reminder that registration is due to secure your spot. As of now, I have closed the dates on Session 1 (June 15th-June 26th MWF 9AM-2PM) and it is no longer available, but I do have plenty of room for Session 2 (July 6th-July 17th MWF 9AM - 2PM). For those of you who have already registered, thank you for allowing me to work with your children this summer and I look forward to plenty of fun and exciting adventures!

Materials are provided but please bring a sack lunch and drink, plus a snack. We will have "mini-field trips" on Fridays (a walk to the nearby park, a visit to the local bookstore or coffee shop to perform an oral reading of our work). At the end of our camp session, we will schedule a date to showcase our masterpieces (the date is TBD)in front of an audience (the parents). Please secure your spot and turn in your registration form attached and payment as soon as possible. You may contact me via email or phone at 972-523-6246.

This year's theme is "Securing Our Future: The Children's Perspective."
Following the basic structure of common writing traits, participants will hear short stories each day relating to their lives and how certain choices affect their future. Using group discussions, participants will identify common elements and brainstorm how these elements can be adapted to their own stories. The brainstorming sessions will help them develop a perspective of their own personal future and the world's future. Using writing prompts and illustrations, participants will create a story of what they hope to see and become, and what impact they want to make to secure our future.

As always, please do not hesitate to call me or email me if you have any questions or concerns. Have a safe and happy summer!

Peace and Blessings,
Mrs. Pulido
