Teen Writing Level 1: Creative Writing

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:
