Writing the Worlds You Imagine II

In this semester-long course, students will build out their creative writing projects. Novels, fantasy volumes, games, short stories, poetry, we'll explore whatever it is you're working on and help you construct, organize, and keep going.

Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students will learn how to work with:
- The Five Elements of Literature (plot, character, conflict, setting, and theme)
- Revising, Editing, and Publishing (these are broad brushstroke lessons, as each of these topics is worth a separate course)
They will walk away with their own writing techniques and strategies for solving writing problems. Many writers leave the class feeling more confident in their writing skills, sharing their work, and giving feedback to other writers. The ultimate goal is to learn to enjoy the process of creating, because, as writers, this is a lifelong endeavor!
While I am not a licensed therapist, I am trained in trauma-informed social emotional learning and mindfulness. I use this training to mitigate harm, provide an inclusive, social justice aware, and supportive environment, and hold space for sensitive topics that may arise.
Homework Offered
Writers are encouraged to work on their projects outside of class as they feel inspired. However, checking in and expanding on their work every day for at least 10 minutes is a good habit to get into. Writers must bring their ideas and something to share to each class meeting (1-2 pages for each class session is recommended). Writers may also set aside time to go through the modules between classes. They are also welcome to use the co-working space to do them.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Learners assess their own progress by setting their own writing goals for their projects and naming what it is they accomplished from week to week.
Grades Offered
 1 file available upon enrollment
Access to the Google Suite, specifically Google Docs is highly recommended, though not necessary. Additionally I will provide slides during class with prompts and use these as handouts for learners to keep.
While I do not censor the writers' topics, some violence, reference to weapons, war, or other sensitive content may come up, I ask that if this is the case, that writers submit their writing at least 24 hour beforehand to me and I can assess whether it is something they can share. If the writing is appropriate, I will ask the writer to provide a trigger warning so that others in the group may opt out of reading/listening.
 I refer to Masterclass.com and the NaNoWriMo Youth Program quite frequently during lessons. Links to these resources will be provided.
