RE: Writing camp for 11 year old ()

I want to recommend Deborah Davis' writing camps. My teen went to Deborah's camps for years and really enjoyed them and liked and trusted her a great deal. She also helped our kid with college essays. Now our kid is college-bound. Campers start beginning 7th grade... Here's her website:

Re: Writing coach needed for college entrance essays

I recommend Deborah Davis -- see her website at She was a great help in the college essay process for my son this year. She worked with him once or twice in person - then reviewed his essays via email and phone. Excellent results, easy to work with. em
