I am a published author/illustrator of children's novels and picture books, adult fiction and nonfiction as well as a veteran homeschool and co-op teacher. I believe that story is the foundation of civilization and a powerful communication tool that we can all use to share our unique perspectives with the world.
Homework OfferedStudents will be encouraged to write a story of their desired length, genre and content within the 10 week period by applying the in-class lessons and techniques. In order to get the most from this class, writing consistently each week is essential. A variety of templates and writing aids will also be provided to assist learners in their story creation. It is strongly recommended that learners complete these exercises.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Students will need a binder or folder for holding handouts and assignments as well as a spiral notebook for writing their story ideas. Handouts and exercises will be provided ahead of each class.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
