Ripe Fruit Writing
Ripe Fruit Writing, the oldest non-institutional creative writing program in the Bay Area, offers unique one-week long, half-day creative writing camps for middle and high school students every summer. Awarded Best of Teen Summer Programs by Parents Press in 2015, these camps are both for teens who love writing and for those who find it challenging. Here, students learn tools to become stronger, more original writers and are encouraged to trust their own unique voice. They gain both confidence and competence and get excited about language itself! Here, in this supportive environment, the imagination is honored and each student is honored and respected. The camps are both inspirational and fun! Offered on zoom with in-person options. The teacher has taught creative writing for over 25 years, including with Poets-in-the Schools, and is a nationally awarded fiction writer.
