KALAMAZOO --After two week of intensive exercises in creative and personal writing at Western Michigan University, 30 young writers, ages 10 to 13, will present their work at the Third Coast's "Writing Celebration" from 1 to 2 p.m. Friday, June 27, in the Fetzer Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The two-week "Camp for Young Writers" is sponsored by WMU's Third Coast Writing Project and has included a trip to the Kalamazoo Nature Center and a campus scavenger hunt to search for inspiration. The result has been numerous polished pieces of writing. During the celebration, young writers will choose their favorite piece to read in front of parents, friends. and area principals and teachers who have students in the camp.
