PCSJ SUMMER CAMP Registration Open!
Classes in June and July, 2013
at History Park San Jose
1650 Senter Road, San Jose, CA 95112
Summer Writing Camp for Youth, sponsored by Poetry Center San Jose and History Park San Jose, is a creative writing camp for middle school (10-13 years old) and high school (14-17 years old) students. We believe that creative writing is the best way for young people to express themselves. Through this writing camp, students will explore the creative writing process by learning, analyzing, and creating poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Students will also engage in understanding the environment of Santa Clara County and writing about it, using poetry, memoir and journaling. By the camp’s conclusion, students will be better creative writers and understand the importance of the environment we live in.
June 14 - 21 Middle School (10-13 years old)
July 15 - 19 High School (14-17 years old)
Morning and Afternoon Sessions:
10:00am - 12:00pm, and 1:00pm - 3:00pm
$150 Morning or Afternoon Session
$250 Full Day (both sessions)
Poetry Center San Jose believes that all children should have access to quality writing programs during the summer. We offer partial scholarships to students with an annual household income of 80% or less of the Median Household Income for Santa Clara County. Please ask about scholarships when you register.

A look at SHARON OLDS with PCSJ on October 4, 2012.
Renowned poet Sharon Olds was brought to San José by PCSJ to lead a sold-out workshop and give a reading at the Petit Trianon. Olds read a wide range of her work and took questions from the enthusiastic audience. After the reading she signed books and spoke individually with many audience members. Olds, who lives in New York City, spoke warmly of "coming home" to San José and the Bay Area, where she grew up and attended Stanford University. PCSJ is proud to have presented Sharon Olds, one of contemporary poetry's leading voices, and winner of several prestigious awards, including the National Book Critics Circle Award.
