Word Wrestlers is a place where writing is daring, exciting, and most of all, fun. We aim to give our wrestlers a balance of both the technical “craft” elements of writing (such as plot, figurative language, beginnings and endings, character, world-building, point-of-view) and more experiential skills (e.g. observation, revision, collaboration, how to grow ideas). The camp consists of guided writing exercises, field trips to find inspiration all over the UBC campus, as well as individual writing and experimentation time. Also, sometimes we’ll just take a break to hang out or toss a frisbee around. Our aim is always to create a space that fosters the thrill of creativity. Campers will discover not only how to write, but why.
