A virtual writing camp for kids!

Throughout five exciting weeks with fun-filled live sessions plus a diverse selection of exercises and references, Destination: Imagination will help your student learn how to take their ideas and turn them into captivating stories.

Hosted by writing tutors, this 5-week interactive course includes daily live streams packed with additional topics and class interaction. Ask questions, get answers, and work your way through the most frustrating storytelling blocks with the help of your tutor and classmates.

We’ll be providing positive feedback and encouragement throughout the week to encourage our new writers.

Week 1 – Brainstorming Beach 

Our first stop on this tour of storytelling adventure is Brainstorming Beach. Find out where creators get their awesome ideas and play fun games to stir your imagination. Along our travels we’ll uncover:

  • How to go from building sandcastles to entire worlds, that readers will believe are real places
  • Mixing ideas from the world around you to form new creations no one’s ever thought of before
  • How to say “yes” to your imagination and not hold yourself back
  • How to take a world and start an exciting tale around it that will capture the attention of your reader

Week 2 – Character Cavern & Plot Mountain   

Week 2 features two fun destinations! In Character Cavern we will discover the endless selection of characters we can choose to fill our stories.  From humans to monsters, aliens to talking trees. Then on Plot Mountain, we will learn how these characters drive a story forward and how to use them most effectively. We’ll watch them climb towards their goal and face obstacles on their way to a thrilling climax.

Prepare to uncover:

  • How to quickly and easily generate wildly different characters, complete with realistic backstory.
  • The key elements of believable characters your readers will truly get behind – and root for them to succeed. How to borrow from reality to create unique species and cultures straight out of your own imagination.
  • How to send your characters on a fun journey and craft an exciting plot.
  • The different stages of plot and the rise and fall of the hero’s journey 

Feel free to come in costume as we have fun with characters!
