Join our weekly creative writing class! We'll discuss the elements of a story and come up with ideas together, then students will write and illustrate their own short story. Perfect for reluctant and enthusiastic writers alike!

Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 3
Students will have a better understanding of the parts of a story and the process of writing one, but also more appreciation and respect for their own ideas and creations.
I am the author of sixteen books for tweens and teens, including the ๐˜—๐˜ช๐˜ฑ ๐˜‰๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต'๐˜ด ๐˜Ž๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜”๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜Š๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด series (Scholastic), the ๐˜Œ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ, ๐˜Œ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ series (Bloomsbury), and the ๐˜‹๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ด series (Bloomsbury). My books are published in twenty-three languages around the world, and have won multiple state and national awards. I have taught creative writing classes across the country at schools, libraries, colleges, and camps, and have taught over 5000 students here on Outschool!

-Something to write with-- typing or writing by hand are both perfectly fine, but students should have whatever supplies they need ready to go at the beginning of class. -Something to draw/illustrate with if they want to draw illustrations for their story. Students will NOT be able to screen share, so drawings must be done by hand or on a second digital device if they wish to show them to the class!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
While students will be encouraged to write about whatever excites or inspires them, this is generally a low violence, high charm/delight type of class.

Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book.
-The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
