In this ongoing class, writers continue drafting and building out their stories, novels, video games, poetry or other projects through weekly writing prompts and peer feedback sessions.

Class Experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Learners will learn various creative writing strategies from both myself and their peers through practicing visualizations, prompt exercises, and peer feedback. Learners will also gain confidence in their writing, world-building, presentation, and feedback abilities.
Homework Offered
It's recommended learners continue drafting or working on their creative writing projects between sessions, using the techniques or ideas/suggestions picked up from class. At least 1-4 pages is recommended to establish a strong writing habit. These pages don't necessarily have to be drafts or full narratives, they can be world-building notes, character sketches and profiles, plot outlines or mindmaps, drawings, maps...whatever the writer feels is necessary for their own work.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class

Due to the nature of prompt writing, learners often write about fantastical images, creatures, or spirits and magic. Weapons and battle scenes may come up as well. Writers are asked to provide a content warning and show their debatable drafts to the instructor privately for approval before presenting it for feedback to a mixed-aged group.
