Virtual Programs

Thank you for your interest in our virtual youth programs! Here is a list of all virtual programs scheduled for the summer of 2021: 

52426 - Virtual Calling All Writers
Grades 9 - 11 • June 27 - July 03  (In partnership with Humanities)

This virtual course is offered at $225.00.

Do you love to write? Are you looking for a chance to connect with other student writers and develop your skills? Do you want to know more about writing as a career path? This highly-interactive virtual workshop will give you a chance to experience writing in a variety of forms, using the best online collaborative tools available. We’ll play Zoom games and share writing challenges (Competitive Google Doc Poetry anyone?). We’ll also explore writing-related careers as we collaborate with current Michigan Tech students and professional writers. During the week you’ll produce your own writing projects (and we’ll even help you find places to submit them for publication).

To sign up click the yellow "Sign Up Now" button in the top right corner and follow the Summer Youth Programs application process.
