Bobcat Young Writers Academy

For students entering grades 1-8

The UCMWP Bobcat Young Writers Academy is an exciting summer writing program for all students entering grades 1-8 in the fall. During the two weeks, students write daily, sharing, discussing, revising, and editing their writing with other young writers — all under the guidance of UC Merced Writing Project Teacher Consultants. In doing so, they begin to understand the difference between writing for self and writing for a reader. Students will build their stamina as writers through daily journaling, and the teachers will guide them to explore some of the many ways writing is used: to inform, entertain, persuade, and reflect. In two short weeks, students develop the habits of good writers with their eyes and minds focused on what it means to write and revise for a reader.
