Teen Writing Level 1: Creative Writing (Hybrid)

This class will explore the fundamentals of craft and will ground the student in the language and techniques necessary to take their writing to the next level.

The class will be a mix of readings, in-class exercises, and prompts. The class culminates in a reading which friends and family are invited to attend. Students must take this class before enrolling in Writing Level 2: Intermediate Workshop. 

Here is a taste of what you’ll learn in class:
Great Beginnings
Students learn what makes a story’s first page pop by writing an opening “hook”.
Killin’ the Villain
Students get to create a complex villain while learning the basics of characterization.
 The Rules of Magic
We study different types of magic systems, and students get the opportunity to build their own.
Let’s Write a Fight Scene
Students get to learn how to write their own action scene in class
