Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to improve their short-stories and novels based in a post-apocalyptic setting.  We will discuss how to create an engaging beginning, stronger characters, an immersive world and exciting plot points.
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in creative writing and literature from Western Kentucky University.  I am experienced in hosting and participating in creative-writing workshops and studied under many well-known published professors at my university whose expertise was in the "horror" and "fantasy" genre. I am a former content creator for a video game and horror movie news website.
No homework will be assigned, but students can submit their work after class for teacher review and feedback.  This is completely optional.
Pencil, paper, or the ability to write in a text document on their computer or laptop.
No assessment and sharing their work during our workshop portion is not required if they are not comfortable. Students can submit their work after class for teacher review and private feedback.  This is completely optional.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Post-apocalyptic writing can contain themes that some may consider frightening or sensitive:  zombies, monsters, sickness, violence against creatures and others, characters may potentially handle weapons.  I will encourage students to keep the stories appropriate for our classroom and will give writing prompts to guide them in the right direction.
