Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to create fictional characters that make sense. 
I am a writer.  Since I received my first journal at 9 years old, I've used words and language to share my heart and my ideas.  I love when a person can tell me a story, or convey a message, or just communicate what they are feeling.

So much of writing seems difficult for the young authors out there.  We call their assignments "Essays" and "Book-Reports" and we often have a metric for these struggling writers that seems impossible to beat.  This is not that...this will touch on those important structures of language, those rules that you just have to have to convey meaning in the story...and then we'll set about the story-telling that turns into delight.

I believe in building young writers one easy, accomplishable step at a time, so later they can construct a world out of words.

This series of Creative Writing Classes will lead those who want to join me in November for National Novel Writing Month and NaNoWriMo's Young Writers Program.  If that sounds interesting you can see what that is here ( https://ywp.nanowrimo.org/pages/for-writers ).
All materials will be shown in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Our 4th session may be longer than 1-hour depending on class size.  Please let me know at the top of the class if your student has time constraints.
