Creative Writing Seed Journals, a Beginning Writing Workshop Camp

This is a creative writing workshop class/camp in which learners will use an old-school composition notebook for journal entries that will become seeds of inspiration, along with the models I share in class, for their self-expression.

Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

This is a hands-on class where students will be asked to write during the class period. Students will be encouraged to be inspired by the readings I’ve shared and to try to writing techniques that I’ve highlighted. They are encouraged to share their writing with me and their peers. I try to give positive feedback and perhaps suggestions in the form of questions. Students are not being taught a direct lesson in this class but are encouraged to write and try different writing techniques and play around with creative writing in a structured setting.
I have been an English teacher in public, private, and charter schools for the last 12 years and have been teaching altogether for 23 years. I am a Teacher Consultant with the Greater New Orleans Writing Project and also received training through the Phillips Exeter Academy. I participated in the New Orleans Poetry Forum for a time, where I learned the value of being brave about sharing writing with peers in order to receive feedback. Developing a safe space in which my students feel comfortable sharing their writing is important. I hope to create a sense of rapport and trust with my students. At the same time, I hope to encourage camaraderie to develop between participants as they open up and share their thoughts and feelings through their writing.  
Students are encouraged to add to their Seed Journals, revise their writing, and type up their work to share with me for guidance or suggestions. 
Required: composition book notebook and pencils Optional Materials for Decorating Seed Journals: colored pens, perhaps magazine cut-outs for collage decorations, glitter, markers, etc. (personal preference!)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
5 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
