I am a published author of several children's and young adult books and have taught creative writing for several years. I am also an editor and proofreader for several authors who sell many books written for adults. As such, I understand how to create great characters that will hook any reader and am passionate about developing young writers' skills so that they learn to love their craft.
Learners will need a writing pad and pencil to make notes about what they learn during the lessons so that they can apply their learning in their own writing at a later date.
Due to the age of the students, and because we will be discussing villains in films, tv or books, discussions may involve characters who, by their nature, do extremely unpleasant things. I will not know in advance which villains will be mentioned but will ask them to think in terms of Marvel characters, or characters from books such as Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. Your student should understand that topics may arise that make them feel uncomfortable but that they must let me know if this occurs so that I can move the conversations along. If there are any particular films or books that you know your child will be uncomfortable with, please send me a private message prior to class so that I can cut any conversations about these before they begin.
