Discussion will include rules for the world, rules of time, space and magic, as well as history, language, geography and customs of the invented world.

I want to teach young people how to tap into their natural writing abilities. I have been a writer most of my life and took several writing courses in the last seventeen years. Six books, including three Young Adult, two Middle-grade and one Women's devotional are published. I also have contracts for publication of three more Middle-grade books. I also have several works in progress and plus many ideas waiting to be written.

As a writer myself I think I can help young people discover and explore their talents either for personal use or public consumption someday. Popular Arts classes
