Create exciting new magic systems, believable fantasy worlds, realistic space travel, and the culture and people who live in those worlds, all in a flexible schedule format.

Class experience

Students will learn how to create believable made-up worlds and why world-building is so important to story development. They will also have a lot of fun creating their own made-up world, whether to use in a story or just for fun.
In all my creative writing classes, the main goal is for students to learn confidence in their own writing and to enjoy writing creatively.
I have been writing stories since I was four, including fantasy and science fiction. I have an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults and have taught creative writing at the middle school level. I maintain involvement in the writing community through critique groups, writers’ forums (including one on speculative fiction), conferences, etc. I love giving students opportunities to practice, explore, and learn creative writing.
Paper and a writing utensil or a computer for writing exercises.
Drawing utensils and a drawing pad (for creating world maps, drawing clothing, etc.).
Handouts will be supplied on a week-by-week basis.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will guide interaction to make sure it is age appropriate. I will ask students for examples of stories; Land of Stories, Wings of Fire, and Percy Jackson are often mentioned.

Topics covered will include some very general ideas on government systems and economic systems as pertains to the students' stories. Discussion will be limited to what works best for a particular story or made-up world. Real-world situations may be mentioned occasionally as examples (for example, how has Korea’s geographic placement affected its history), but again, treatment will be objective and neutral and limited to what works best for a given story-world.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
