Description

Class Experience

Students will cover:
structuring stories to suit the various styles of fanfiction, as well as the ways that fanfiction differs from other story writing, characterisation, dialogue, working within an already established setting, pitfalls to avoid, the pros and cons and rules of publishing on fan sites, how to deal with feedback.

Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, I've almost 20 years experience in teaching many subjects- but primarily English- in schools. 
I've edited work by young writers and have critiqued and helped those sharing work on fanfiction.net as well as being requested by several writers to act as their 'beta' (proofreader/ editor ) and believe that taking something that a young person is passionate about and creating fiction about it is a highly effective way to develop writing skills.
No formal homework set. 
Notebook and something to write with, or device to make notes/ write on. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment during class
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
No inappropriate content in the class- but fanfiction websites will be referred to, with explanations that members need to be aware of the minimum age for joining and what to be aware of should they wish to do so at some point. 
Mention will be made of various books/ films/ TV shows/ games but no material will be directly used.
