The nuts and bolts of Circuit Tree, a youth writing camp


The Writers Guild of Alberta has traditionally offered up workshops for youth through the summer months, geared toward young aspiring writers that have an interest in short stories, screenplays or poetry.

This year the multifaceted affair goes online with a great array of instructors diving into how to create characters, dipping into what goes into a radio play, delving into the challenges of turning fact into fiction and more.

Colin Matty is the Camp Director with the Writer’s Guild of Alberta. Here he talks with Tony King about the nuts and bolts of this year’s edition called Circuit Tree:

This is a summer workshop for youth aged 11 -19 interested in any and all forms of writing. Youth can immerse themselves in a community of creatives as they learn from professional authors and playwrights in a week-long series of workshops.

And that’s only the beginning – world building, song writing, Dungeons & Dragons, campfire, bedtime stories, and more digital adventures await! For full details on the program, along with registration, check out
