Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will boost their confidence mindset as a writer, brainstorming unique places where stories can be inspired, use literature to explore author's craft, create detailed lists to elaborate their writing, and have a safe space to share their words. 
Writers will need a notebook, something to write with, and a pile of fiction novels.  If you don't have a bookshelf full at home, I recommend going to the library and picking out an armful of books that intrigue you.  (5-10 books or more?) The reading level is not important as long as you are able to read them.  For example, Charlotte's Web is a 680 Lexile.  This may be below your reading level, but is a great book to have in your pile.  Graphic novels and nonfiction will not be used.  
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
