Creative Writing I
Does the dragon want to eat the unicorn? Can the princess save the prince from making a fool of himself? This introduction to creative writing builds on children’s natural love of hearing and telling stories. Students will be guided to an understanding of plot, characterization, and setting. There will be regular writing challenges, and the instructor will help students on an individual basis with their own writing projects.
