In this flexible course, students learn story writing techniques by meeting the Goops! A bunch of naughty boys and girls who learn how to behave! Through various Goop readings, children will be inspired to write their own creative story.

Class experience

Students will learn the basics of story structure, character growth, and strong sentence writing, while creating naughty characters and having them learn from their mistakes and bad behavior. 
•  Beginning, Middle, and End and answer the 5 Ws of storytelling

I'm a published fiction and nonfiction author, former homeschool mom of four, and have taught and tutored all ages for close to 20 years. I developed these creative writing and storytelling techniques when I started teaching an elective writing course at my kids' school over 10 years ago. This curriculum has developed over time and can be adapted for children of all ages to be successful in storytelling. I'm the author of "Release the Novel in You" workbook: The go-to fiction book for teen authors (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1508555710), and I teach advanced novel writing and story telling as well as other writing and elective classes on Outschool.

What parents are saying:

Gina is a phenomenal writing teacher! We have loved working with her. We have a range of ages and she is great at adapting to their ages and learning styles. She's very patient and good at helping them focus. My kids have learned so much and been stretched and challenged in the area of writing. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to advance in any area of writing! - Bethany mother of K, 1, 3, 4 tutored students.

Students should have a couple of pencils, notebook paper, and a folder or 3 ring binder. Final stories and poems will need to be typed and shared with teacher for input. Worksheets will be provided, but learners will need to be able to write or have parental help.

I love seeing students get excited about writing, even reluctant writers. Ever since I was 8  years old, I've been journaling and writing poetry to express things I couldn't speak out loud or didn't know how to. My thoughts just came out better...
