Description

Class Experience

Outside of writing, editing, and teaching, I collect apocalypses. I have explored the various ends of the world as a writer through fiction and nonfiction, and am a regular scifi & fantasy convention panelist on the topic of apocalyptic media. As a lifelong consumer of apocalyptic media  – books, comics, television, movies, music, even recipes – I believe the genre is uniquely well suited to motivating young writers and offers an infinite number of possible worlds to create (and destroy) with words. Apocalypse and dystopian media resonates with tween and young teen readers and holds a prominent position on the Young Adult shelves in libraries and book stores, providing a great motivator for students to improve their own writing through exploring the end of the world. 
Students may work on their world's at home. This isn't required, but if a learner has more to write than they can complete in a one hour block, they are welcome to continue working outside of class time. 
5 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Considering widespread disasters and global crises can be frightening for some young writers.  While all work produced for this class will be appropriate for the indicated age range in terms of content, parents should feel free to inform me of any particular phobias or other fears their children need to avoid over the course of this class.
