Creative Writing Classes & Camps Kids & Teens

The Muse Writers Center is excited to offer several great classes and creative writing camps this upcoming summer 2017 for young writers (ages 7-8 and 9-11) and teen writers (ages 12-17). Advance registration is required for all courses, and the registration period is now open. Classes are held at The Muse Writers Center (2200 Colonial Ave. Suite #3 in Norfolk's Ghent Neighborhood -in the Ghent Market Shops).
 
Returning students receive a discount on tuition. And, as it is our policy to never turn a student away who cannot afford a class, we have created a robust tuition assistance program and offer it freely to those who need it.
