If you want to sharpen your writing skills, become a better writer, and have a blast, Johnathan Rand's Author Quest is for you!
 

Open to young authors age 10 - 13, Author Quest is 4 days/3 nights of writing courses, instruction, and classes at Wolverine Camps in Wolverine, nestled in beautiful northern lower Michigan. Oh, there will be lots of other fun activities, too . . . but this camp's main focus is on becoming an even better writer! Instructors include Johnathan Rand and other published authors! No matter what kind of writing you enjoy: fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, thriller/horror, humor, mystery, poetry, history . . . this camp is designed for writers who have this in common: they LOVE to write, and they want to improve their skills!

What will you do at Author Quest? You will write. Then, you'll write more. And more. This camp is ONLY for students who take their writing seriously, and, if your application is accepted, you'll write more in four days than you may have ever written before . . . and have a great time doing it! Of course, there will be many other activities to enjoy, including some *special* surprise events!

August 6 - 9 (full!) December 27 - 30 (now accepting applications). All camps will be held at Wolverine Camps in Wolverine, Michigan (Cheboygan County).

2) Download and fill out the official Author Quest application worksheet, and include a 100-word essay about why you wish to attend Author Quest, and what you expect to achieve. Please note that not all applications will be selected to attend Author Quest, so do your very best! Only 60 young authors will be selected to attend each camp (just 24 in December!), so it will be important that you fill out your application request and send it in right away.
