Beginner Creative Writing: A Magical Short Story (Under 10)

Class
In this six-week creative writing course, students will dream up and write their own fantastical short story! Perfect for dreamers writing their first story ever as well as experienced young writers who want to develop their skillset and be challenged in a fun, energetic and gentle environment. Each lesson will focus on a different element of creative writing, like structure, adding details, and hunting down new and exciting vocabulary words, but the overall focus is on writing as a form of creative play.

Description

Class Experience

Students will have a better understanding of the parts of a story and the process of writing one, but also more appreciation and respect for their own ideas and creations.
I am the author of sixteen books for tweens and teens, including the ๐˜—๐˜ช๐˜ฑ ๐˜‰๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต'๐˜ด ๐˜Ž๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜”๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜Š๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด series (Scholastic), the ๐˜Œ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ, ๐˜Œ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ series (Bloomsbury), and the ๐˜‹๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ด series (Bloomsbury). My books are published in twenty-three languages around the world, and have won multiple state and national awards. I have taught creative writing classes across the country at schools, libraries, colleges, and camps, and have taught over 5000 students here on Outschool!
Each week, students will be asked to work on their course-long short story. Students will post their progress to the classroom at least twenty-four hours before the following week's class! If students do not post their work on time, we will be unable to discuss their work in class-- parents, please help me ensure your students have the best learning experience by encouraging them to post their work on time.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
While students will be encouraged to write about whatever excites or inspires them, this is generally a low violence, high charm/delight type of class.

Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book.
-The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
