Elementary Creative Writing
Students will learn about, explore, and practice the three basic forms of creative writing—fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—by reading examples of each together and discussing what makes the examples fit into each category.
Live Classes: Tuesdays, 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time, from June 8th to July 27th. The live classes will be 40 minutes long.
Student Expectations: Students will hear, see, and respond to works in each of the three creative writing forms. They will also use their imaginations to create their own manuscripts, which they will read aloud in the live classes. They will have fun playing with words and forms!
Student Support: The instructor is available via email.
Feedback/Assessment: Students will be encouraged to expand their imaginations and to heighten their love of words. Feedback will be provided on their creative writing assignments.
Materials/Supplies: Students will need lined paper and pencils.
