Creative Writing: So You Want to Be an Author?

Average rating:4.3Number of reviews:(3)
As a professional writer, editor, and teacher, I'll teach your students how to improve their creative writing abilities. Students can join any time and will write (and share) their short stories, novel ideas, and other works of fiction.

Class experience

Each week we alternate between either (1) a lesson on a specific aspect of writing or (2) a feedback day in which students can share what they've written to get useful feedback from the other students and from me, a professional editor. Lessons will vary based on student needs but will cover: outlining, drafting, revising, active voice, imagery, "show; don't tell," vivid verbs, specific language, sentence variation, character development, plot development, setting description and theme.
