Class Experience

The goal of this class is to get everyone writing and having fun by learning about all the different types of writing that are considered creative writing, as well as by exploring the elements that make creative writing good.

Every week, one additional writing prompt will be given to students who want to do more writing. This is an optional activity, but everyone who chooses to do this extra work and submits it to the teacher will receive feedback.
Students need to come prepared to write, so they will need a pencil and eraser, and some paper. If students prefer to write on a computer, that is also acceptable.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
