Bobcat Young Writers Academy
The UCMWP Bobcat Young Writers Academy is a 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 will develop the habits of good writers, with their eyes and minds focused on what it means to write and revise for a reader.
