Class experience

This class is taught in English.
By participating in this class, students will:
- develop writing projects in the genre(s) of their choosing
- study one another's writing in order to enhance appreciation of different genres
- read their work out loud to a group of supportive peers
- collectively develop a vocabulary of the writing craft
- use the vocabulary we develop together to discuss one another's work
- moderate their own feedback sessions
- assess the successes and challenges of each draft
- write editorial notes on their own drafts
I have been leading creative writing workshops for pre-teens for seven years. I really enjoy working with kids outside of school, where grades and competition don't put undue pressure on the students. My master's degree is in creative writing, so I also have been a student in writing workshops. I have a strong understanding of what helps writing students flourish.
Learners will need a copy of their writing and a way of taking notes on workshop feedback. Some students handwrite their projects and take notes in the margins of their drafts. Some students type their drafts, but then print them for workshop and take handwritten notes on the printed pages. And some students type their poems in Google Docs and type workshop notes as Comments. Your child can use whichever method works best for them.
Learners are encouraged to bring in writing inspired by their lived experiences. However, writing that demeans marginalized groups will not be tolerated. (This includes language, plot points, or character descriptions that are racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc.) Learners should also avoid using curses and swear words, in accordance with Outschool policy. If a learner is questioning whether or not a piece is classroom-appropriate, they can send me a copy privately before workshop for my review.
