Jhohadli Summer Youth Writing Project – in their own words – Part 4

So, the deed is done; the Jhohadli Summer Youth Writing Project (August 12th to 16th 2013) has come and gone. I asked the participants (14 young people aged between 9 and 19) to evaluate and this is what they said.

Q. Would you recommend the JSYWP to others? If so, why? If not, why not?

“Yes, I would recommend it to others because it has personally helped me and so I do believe it would be of great help to others. The activities we did were very helpful in developing writing, reading , observational skills and more…… and I would love to have someone experience the amazing week I did.”

“I would because it can improve other people’s writing skills”
“Yes! Because it will improve their writing”

“I would recommend this camp because I don’t feel like enough people can explain themselves and writing would help”

“Yes I would recommend this camp to others because I learn so much in only 5 days”
“Yes I would because it was a great experience and you really learn a lot”at Big Church by Kurne
“Yes because they will become much better at writing”

“Yes! Especially if writing is their passion. Ms. Hillhouse really evokes the creative spices in your brain and helps you to express them”

“I definitely would recommend it next year because based on my experience, it
is an amazing help.”

“Yes I would recommend the camp to others because I think it would  improve their writing skills and inspire them as it has done me. But I think the course could use more handouts with more info concerning writing.”
