Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the kinds of writing they can do about animals. They will improve their creative writing skills in either creative nonfiction or fiction, and they will also have the experience of sharing their writing with the class, as well as giving and receiving feedback. 
For ten years, I have been an English professor. In addition to teaching at the college level, I have also taught creative writing in community arts centers, online, and here on Outschool. I love working with students to help them find ways to express themselves through writing. 
Between days 2 and 3, students will write a short story, poem, or essay about an animal. 
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There will not be any mature content, but we may discuss pets who have died, which can be upsetting for some children.
