Our goals in this class are for students to build their writing skills, create, and publish their own scary stories.
I am a published horror author, I have experience teaching creative writing classes, I have more than 20 credits in English language arts, I hold a bachelor’s degree in educational studies, and I have more than 20 credits towards a master’s degree in history. I also have more than 5 years’ experience in asynchronous learning without live meetings.
Homework: Students should write independently for at least two hours per week.
2 files available upon enrollmentI will include pre created worksheets and prerecorded videos for all learners enrolled.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Horror is not a genre everyone is comfortable with, and all learners are entitled to creativity. Some scary stories might reference monsters, demons, aliens, or violence of people against people. I will ask that students try to keep stories appropriate for class while still aligning them with the horror genre.
