Fargo Camp
Camp #1: June 26 - 30, 2023
Camp #2: July 24 - 28, 2023
9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Study with professional writers and educators from North Dakota State University, North Dakota State College of Science and the University of North Dakota. The camp will culminate in a public reading.

In order to provide this opportunity to young artists across the state, and to accommodate for ongoing COVID-19 concerns, the 2023 camp will include both an in-person (at NDSU) and a virtual option. Lodging is not provided.

$220 in-person fee includes daily snacks and lunch. The fee for virtual participants is $170. Both costs include all materials, a camp t-shirt, and prize drawings.

A limited number of scholarships are available, click here for an application. Contact camp director Jamee Larson at jamee.larson@ndsu.edu.
