The Canadian Storytelling Camp

This summer, a special story-telling camp will be held in Vancouver for dyslexic children who have a love for stories and active imaginations, but are not reading and writing at their grade level. Many CWILL authors, including kc dyer, Julie Burtinshaw, Meg Tilly, and myself, Lee Edward Födi, will be leading workshops or speaking at the camp.

In this four-day camp, children, entering grades 5 through 7, will be immersed in the creative art of storytelling using mostly verbal techniques.  They will hear stories come alive straight from authors, actors, illustrators, and other artistic professionals and learn how to create their own worlds and tell their own stories.

If you are a teacher who works with dyslexic children, be sure to tell them about Storytelling camp! The camp will take place August 2-5, 2011 at the Immaculate Conception Parish Centre in Dunbar, Vancouver.  For more information, and to register, visit the official website at www.canadianstorycamp.org.

About Lee Edward Fodi

I'm a children's author, illustrator, and educator—or, as I like to think of myself, a daydreaming expert. When I'm not daydreaming myself, I teach kids how to do it. Yes, they might seem pretty good at it already, but in my experience, most of them haven't learned yet how to put it to good use. I'm the creator of the Kendra Kandlestar series and have illustrated books for other authors.
