Poetry Writing | Rising 9th-12th Graders
8/3-8/37 | Noon-2PM | $200
A great poet once said that “poetry is the best words in the best order.” Another said that a poet “is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.” That’s where we’ll start. In this class, you’ll read and write poetry, moving from imitation to creation. We’ll come a few steps closer to knowing how poetry opens a door to wisdom, grows us as contributors, and gives new meaning to thinking and living well.
College Bootcamp | Open to Seniors
8/3-8/4 | 9-12:30 | Free
Taught by Pacifica College Counselor Jennifer Brase, this course is designed for 12th-grade students who are preparing for the college admissions process. During this workshop, students will set up and fill out on-line applications, including the UC, Cal State, and Common Application. Students will learn how to brainstorm effective essay topics and will begin writing their rough drafts. By the end of these two days, students will have a head start on their applications and be ready to start their Senior year. Highly recommended!
