Kids WOW!, Write On, Door County’s annual creative camps for young writers, will return July 8-12 this year.

Children’s author John Coy will lead third to fifth graders through the process of creating a picture book, focusing on characters, setting and creating tension. At the end of the week, participants will have their own picture book to share.

Former Graywolf Press publisher Fiona McCrae will lead sixth to eighth graders in writing about the natural world. Using local woods and land as inspiration, participants will explore the many ways to create a narrative, experimenting with realistic, descriptive, magical, poetry or prose writing styles.

Space is limited for both camps. Visit to register.

Write On is located at 4210 Juddville Road in Juddville.
