Our mission is to foster confidence and creativity in writing through small group classes and creative writing summer camps. Our encouraging atmosphere helps young writers in grades six through twelve to build their writing skills and fluency.
Students find our classes fun and creative. Our learning modules are tailored to provide a powerful mix of writing instruction, hands-on workshopping, and individual attention.
Creative Writing Summer Camps
Each summer StoryStudio brings together young writers from throughout Chicagoland.
In the week-long Creative Writing Camp, young authors will write without worrying about grades or deadlines, create new work and polish existing pages, and work closely with professional writers who will help to guide their process and answer any questions about writing, publishing, living the writing life, and more.
Our committed and talented instructors are working writers who bring their experience and expertise to the classroom with warmth and humor.
StoryStudio teachers come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. What they share is StoryStudio’s philosophy of teaching and building an encouraging and positive classroom atmosphere.
Our creative writing teachers are working writers who have published in their fields and who excel in helping young writers find their voice and enjoy a positive experience.
Our academic writing instructors and tutors have an education background and experience in working with students in many forms of academic writing and reading.
All of our tutors are happy to talk with you about their individual style and approach.
