Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Activities and lessons will include brainstorming, discussion, and collaboration, using vivid details, providing (and accepting) constructive criticism, and the basics of revision. 

Students will learn to overcome and/or repair weaknesses in their work and to objectively embrace their inherent talents and creativity. 

Students will learn a "1 positive, 1 negative, 1 suggestion" method for providing constructive criticism to other writers.

Students will be provided the tools of the "writer's toolbox" needed to elevate and improve their own personal writing skills.  

Students will develop observation skills, collaboration skills, empathy, ways to elevate their writing, and the skills of reading in public. They will learn methods to help them focus, and guidelines for writing practice that incorporates sound revision methods.  
With my MFA in Creative Writing and 20+ years of experience with writing groups and writing workshops, families can trust me to moderate discussions and criticisms professionally and with empathy, maintaining a safe space in which writers can learn to provide and accept constructive criticism.
Students will be encouraged to "immerse themselves" in the experience, spending time after class focused on their writing and revision work. 

You can assist by providing your learner with a quiet, undisturbed writing space for the duration of the class. 

To fully benefit from the workshop, students should be encouraged to "unplug" from their typical media input (phone, television, internet) during our time together.
A revision worksheet will be provided.
Students will finish the workshop with writing work in various stages of completion and revision. They will also be given handouts and tools available to help them improve their writing and revise their own work. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
