Canyon Crest Academy’s Creative Writing Club holding free Middle School Writing Workshop Series

Canyon Crest Academy’s Creative Writing Club recently announced a series of free writing workshops for middle school students. As of March 4, students can learn about plot, characterization, setting and much more from bestselling and award-winning published authors.

The CCA Creative Writing Club is known for the coordination of the CCA Writers’ Conference, which hosted 200 students from 24 high schools all over San Diego at an all-day event featuring 22 writing workshops.

Julia Camilleri, president of the CCA Creative Writing Club, is coordinating these workshops as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. She notes, “I was so inspired by attending the CCA Writers’ Conference as a freshman that I became president of the club. I wanted to ensure that my peers could enjoy the same inspirational and educational workshops. Now we’d like to help middle school students be inspired to develop their skills in creative writing.”

This unique program is being held at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center, (3777 Townsgate Drive, San Diego) on Fridays from 3:30-5 p.m. Workshops will be given by authors alternating with workshop/critique group meetings facilitated by members of the CCA Creative Writing Club.

These workshops are free and open to any middle school students. Pre-registration is required. Please email to register with student’s name, grade, school and contact information.
