Description

Class Experience

- write on paper what you see in your mind
- develop detailed descriptions that make an imagined world interesting and consistent
- use scenarios to introduce your fantasy characters and create believable action
- improve your writing through practice and feedback
I am a qualified schoolteacher and teach English, German and French, fostering a curiosity about different cultures and ways of life. I have taken many school classes to explore historical sites around London, the city where I live and work, and ask students to consider how the past impacts modern life, and express their observations in writing. I am fascinated by royal myths and legends and spend many weekends exploring the city’s hidden corners and cultural landmarks and have invented several imagined worlds based on these artefacts. 
I am also a trained artist and visual storyteller and bring historic facts alive through highlighting cultural details and drawing students into discussions. I encourage students to sharpen their analytical skills when they imagine a fantasy version of history and to create a consistent cultural and economic model as a foundation for their imagined kingdoms.
Each of the 4 classes provides writing time so even if students do not find much time to write on their own, they will end the course with descriptive details of their main characters and plot lines that expand and explain their kingdom. In my experience students will be excited to develop their ideas after each class. I guide students to think about detailed storylines, spur the imagination and support their writing with feedback. 
Each student needs to bring the map and materials from the previous Imagined Kingdoms course. In addition they benefit from having a notebook for writing and drawing, or a folder to keep the kingdom writing organised in one place. We will be writing and drawing so please bring different pens, pencils, colours, etc. to write and sketch with. Recommended for serious kingdom builders: sign up for your free World Anvil account before the course starts. This website helps you keep your writing online in one place where you can share it with others.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
