Raise a Reader Youth Writing Camp Facilitators Needed

Call for Workshop Proposals

Sponsored by UNBC and The Prince George Citizen

The 3rd Annual Raise a Reader Youth Writing Camp at UNBC will be held July 26-29, 2012. The RAR Writing Camp organizers are looking for workshop proposals from local writers, educators, and/or cultural workers. The workshops should be 1 – 2 hours but can consist of any number of activities, presentations, and interactions. Because of the age group, it should involve the students actively participating. The workshop should be writing-related but might involve a reading, workshopping student work, visual art, publishing, editing, genre discussion, field trips, performance, drama, tv/film, music, storytelling, collaboration, etc. No follow up contact with student will be required. The students attending the camp will be chosen in a region-wide contest. The camp will be held at the UNBC campus where there will be readings, films and other activities throughout the 3-day event.

The organizers will evaluate proposals on the basis of their content, organization, and fit with the camp as a whole. In your proposal please provide a brief bio and/or c.v. describing your training and background, a one-page outline of your proposed workshop, its goals and methods, and complete contact information.

Raise-a-Reader and its sponsors will pay $250 to each participating facilitator.
