This is an ongoing course designed to allow high school level writers to explore different themes and genres they may not otherwise be exposed to. Each month is broken down into narrow weekly themes. Every class will have a relevant flash fiction exercise (with provided writing prompts) and a voluntary peer feedback element. Creative writing is fluid, expressive, and often deeply personal. I am here to provide support and encouragement for students as they explore what kind of writer they...
This class is designed to give young writers the freedom to create whilst challenging them with genres that may be outside of their normal repertoire. It is a fun class meant to exercise the brain and provide inspiration. Students will be encouraged to share their work. A peer workshop environment gives a writer the advantage of a variety of viewpoints and grows their confidence in their own abilities.
BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College Minor in Journalism from Emerson College Co-facilitator of the Young Critics Program at Glasgow Women’s Library, where I mentored young women in order to help them gain confidence in their writing and reviewing abilities.
As this is an ongoing class, any “homework” is optional. There will be suggested reading material and writing prompts provided each week at the end of class if students want further practice in that genre. This work can be posted on the classroom page if they wish to request feedback from myself or their classmates.
Students should take this class on a device that has access to a camera, microphone, and word processing application. If students wish to write by hand, they will need a journal or notebook and writing instrument. Any reading material will be provided by the teacher.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
I cannot predict what writing students will bring or create in class, but students will be advised to share work that is YA appropriate. Writers crafting stories with more sensitive material can share this privately with me for feedback, rather than publicly in the classroom.
