Intermediate Creative Writing
Welcome to Intermediate Creative Writing!
This two week course will take your child through the process of creating longer pieces of fiction primarily through short stories. Often times we want to jump right into novels and world building, but putting in the ground work with flash fictions and impactful short stories will help you develop your writing skills without the risk of burnout or project abandonment.
Each student will complete at least one piece of fiction by the end of the session and have the opportunity to read it and discuss with the class. Options and resources for publication will be given, but is not required.
