Teachers, school administrators, and other educators are invited to nominate talented high school students for “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: A Creative Writers’ Camp,” to be held Saturday, September 28, 2013, at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. The Dakota Writing Project (DWP), a local teachers’ organization affiliated with the National Writing Project, and the Vermillion Literary Project (VLP), an award-winning student organization, are hosting the one-day camp.

The camp, which will run from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., includes workshops on fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, revision, performance, and poetry slams, to be followed by a public reading and mini-poetry slam in Farber Hall.

The early registration fee (postmark on or before September 16, 2013) is $50; the regular registration fee is $60. Participants enjoy a day of workshops and receive a camp t-shirt, lunch, refreshments during breaks, and a copy of the VLP magazine. Reduced-fee scholarships based on financial need are available; email dwp@usd.edu for information. Enrollment is limited, so nominated students are encouraged to register as soon as possible. The registration form, camp schedule, and additional information are available online at http://sites.usd.edu/dwp/camp .
