Pelican Publishers has announced that it will be hosting a kids publishing camp this summer, a first for the company.

In a release the company, founded in 1999 by Dr Henry Lowe, said: “Pelican Publishers is offering the first ever publishing camp for youngsters as young authors are becoming the hot new trend. We want to start moulding the minds and transmitting the art of communication to those who are interested in the craft of storytelling. ‘Everyone has a story,’ it has been said. ‘Not everyone knows how to tell that story,’ we have found. ”

The publishing camp will run for three weeks, providing “interesting, fun and educational activities for youngsters eight to 10 years old.

“It was created to help foster a sense of creativity, discipline and entrepreneurship at a young age”.

Campers will be taught the art of storytelling, plot and character development, components of a book and book design, all with a blend of fun and educational activities.

“The highlight of the camp is that at the end of the three weeks, each camper will leave as a published ‘author’. On the final day, there will be a public book sale where they will get a chance to sell copies of their books,” said the firm that has published over 50 book titles.

Two sets of campers will be accommodated – the first set will start July 3 and the second August 8. The camp will offer an authentic experience as the young authors will be right on site at 44 Lady Musgrave Road, where they will see how their books develop every day.

Campers will arrive at 9:00 a.m. and leave at 3:00 p.m. Monday to Friday with an option for aftercare. The cost is $3,500 weekly, plus $500 for registration. Space is limited.

The company said the camp will serve as an opportunity for a lot parents faced with the difficult challenge of being at work, while kids are on holiday.
