The most valuable part of the Intensive was being able to write what we wanted.
We were taken seriously in our writing!
I learned to develop my voice, the voices of my characters, and my personal style.
I freakin’ loved poetry!
The most valuable part was getting to work with other kids who were just as passionate as me about writing and getting input/critique/constructive criticism/ encouragement from them.
I loved the special guests. They were a cool way to add variety to the week. Great choices on whom to bring in!
I wrote more poems this week than I can keep track of!
I learned to spark my imagination and really put more description in my writing.
The Intensive really makes me think creatively – I write so much better and so much more than the rest of the year.
Great being able to focus on different aspects of writing each day.
Loved being able to learn about a new form of writing. Lisa (Memoir) was great!
The TV Writer’s Workshop was absolutely brilliant. So much fun, great ideas were thrown around – wish it could have been longer!

I enjoyed the free writes and found them very valuable.
The Wednesday excursion was so mystical, beautiful, and just so incredible.
I felt so “at home.” Everyone shared the same interests as me!
I learned to never stop writing!
FEEDBACK FROM PARENTS
The constant encouragement to write - writing treated as a pleasure and a creative achievement - and being immersed in an atmosphere of people who loved writing too. It was a *celebration* of writing, not just an education in writing, and
we loved that.
My son thought it was great. The excursion provided a lot of inspiration and creativity. He made new friends and got to
think outside the box.
Most valuable: Working with all the amazing teachers and the students that are both supportive and continue to push him to do his best.
The Writers Circle program is clearly something special. I enjoyed hearing what all the kids had to say - so much
from their heart.
It's such a great opportunity for my daughter to work in this way and with other people. She spoke about how wonderful she thinks it is to have the opportunity to work with published authors and gain their insights and experiences.
My daughter came home from camp exhausted today and raving about the day! She absolutely loved everything about it!! She is having a great week so far!! Thank you to all of you at The Writers Circle!!!
All this awesomeness happened at the loft at MONDO-Summit
