As a student at Southern Door High School, Cameron signed up for a Saturday Write On class taught by Liza Wiemer, whose YA novel Hello takes place in Door County. This was the first time he was able to work with a real author and talk about his dreams of becoming a writer. When the day was over, he knew he wanted to be part of Write On, Door County, and soon after he was invited to serve on the board.
It’s been an amazing journey to work with people of so many backgrounds who all have the same love of writing. My current role is to organize Write On’s Teen Council to involve all five Door County high schools and offer programming suggestions. My personal mission with the group is to offer interested teens the chance to share their stories. After all, isn’t that what writing is all about?
