Campers in 5th and 6th grade read Margaret Walker’s poem “I Want to Write” as inspiration for thinking about the subjects that they might want to cover during Creative Writing Camp.

Here is a poem that uses anaphora to highlight what kind of writing this camper wants to do:

I want to write

I want to write for my fathers and forefathers

I want to write about war across the universe

I want to write words coated with light

I want to write hope for my people

I want to write

By Ben, 6th grade
