Mad Lab Writing Camp

Helping kids unlock their imagination and tell their story!

Throughout five fun-filled days plus a diverse selection of exercises and references, Mad Lab Writing Camp will help your student learn how to take their ideas and turn them into captivating stories.

From the beginning building blocks all the way down to making great word choices, they’ll learn how to bring their stories to life!

Hosted by writing tutors, this 5-day 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.

Day 1 – Forecast: Brainstorming

In this fun-filled first day, we will take a journey into:

  • How to transform inspiration into a compelling hook for your tale.
  • Creating a believable world… without taking two decades to research and plan!
  • Saying “yes” to your ideas and allowing your creativity to take flight.

Day 2 – Character Cauldron

Creative writing allows us to see the world from the eyes of an endless selection of characters.  From humans to monsters, aliens to talking trees. This exciting session will let us explore how characters drive a story forward and how to use them most effectively.

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.

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

Day 3 – Putting On Your Writer Lens 

A key skill to building a great story is being able to use “writer’s lens,” thinking like an author. 

On this day, we’ll discover:

  • How different Points of View affect your storytelling
  • How to write description in a way that is exciting to the reader
  • Writing dialogue that is realistic and memorable.

Day 4 – Story Kitchen

Now it’s time to take a trip into the story kitchen, where we will take the ingredients and whip your story into a magnificent dish.

  • How different Points of View affect your storytelling
  • What parts of the story to keep and what to cut
  • How to stay original and avoid cliché
  • What it means to “show don’t tell.”

Day 5 – The Grand Finale

It’s time to pull it all together. We will discuss next steps. What to think about when you are making a book cover. How to think of yourself as a writer.
