Class Experience

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Resources will be shared in Google Docs and PDF format. If your learner doesn't want to print it out, I recommend the Google Docs option. They will need a google account or will need to use yours, to "Make a Copy" of the Google Docs resource when they click on the Google Docs link. 

For the publishers/agents/markets lessons, links will be provided to books and websites where they can find agents and editors to send their stories to.
