Journalism & Creative Writing Track
LEARN GOOD WRITING SKILLS
INTRODUCTION TO THE PYRAMID CODE OF WRITING
PRACTICE WRITING TECHNIQUES
Learn the ins and outs of journalism. Girls learn basic web reporting, interviewing, editing and news writing techniques. Students spend part of the day in a classroom environment designed to mirror a professional newsroom, where they brainstorm story ideas, research current affairs and learn how to write news stories, the other half of the day is spent interviewing in the field. By the end of the program, students will have produced multiple stories on a chosen topic of interest..Each student will have an opportunity to have their piece published online and to start building a professional portfolio via our partnerships with local weekly papers.
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING
"What an incredible week for my daughter! I was so impressed with how happy and proud she came home every day. The staff is awesome. The interns are super cool. These girls totally rock. We're so in."
"You may ask, “What is so great about, Girls Rock S.B. as compared to all the other programs for kids?” And while the other programs may offer great things, no other non-profit will give the gift of self-realization and self-empowerment through music like Girls Rock S. B. does."
WHAT CAMPERS ARE SAYING
“I can't wait till next summer! I learned how to play the bass - I even wrote a song for our band. This camp is WAY MORE than music - My favorite activity was the zip line and swimming everyday.”
