Class Experience

Each class can be taken as a stand-alone. 
This class is designed to challenge and push learners to be the best writers they can be. 
Students will be introduced to various subjects on a rotating schedule.
Mastery of the material is not the goal, but with practice and coaching each student will make progress on their novels. 
Students should come with a willingness to learn new techniques.
My love of writing started when I was 8 years old and hasn't stopped. 

I'm a published author, writing teacher, and tutor who developed these creative writing techniques when I started teaching an elective course at my kids' school over 10 years ago. I found that the novel writing books on the market held too much information for teens who just wanted to write their book, so I created one that is fun and easy to follow. What I offer my students is more content and advance techniques that other teachers may shy away from due to the complexity of the material. Over the years, I've found a way to simplify these teachings and make them fun! 

“If you are thinking about publishing a book, she’s amazing. If you just want to write a story, she’s amazing. I highly recommend her classes.”– Katherine, 11 yrs old

"All writers, regardless of their age or level, need to understand the nuances of story, the layers of a character, how to put a scene together as well as how to wordsmith their stories. Enter Gina Conroy's terrifically fun and creative course for teens-Release the Novel in You! From its engaging and fun presentation, delightful acronyms, playful look at analyzing a story and application sections, it takes the rules out writing and turns it back into what it should be—fun! Practical and specific, it covers everything from story structure to characterization, to the hero's journey to writing fixes—everything an intermediate writer needs to take their story from an idea on the page to a novel." - Susan May Warren, Award-winning novelist and writing coach 
Students should continue working on their novels and writing projects outside of class. 
Something to write and take notes with. Their novel WIP (work in progress)
Learners writing is assessed through in class participation and in class sharing of stories. 
More extended tutoring, brainstorming, or editing maybe available on request in a 1:1 session. 
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

About Me

I love seeing students get excited about writing, even reluctant writers. Ever since I was 8  years old, I've been journaling and writing poetry to express things I couldn't speak out loud or didn't know how to. My thoughts just came out better...
