I have a degree in professional writing from Liberty University. 
Students will be given sections of their short story to write each week for homework. In the final three weeks of class, students will be required to write two rough drafts and a final project for homework.
Students will need to bring a notebook and pencil or pen to each class. Students can choose to write their stories by hand or on a computer. They will need access to one or the other for this writing class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide an informal assessment of each student's participation and effort in the class.  
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Each student will be able to choose their genre of short story. Students will be required to keep their stories within the bounds of a PG rating.
