Creative Writing

Grades 7-10

Creative Writing

Course Description                 

How many writers does it take to tell a story? Despite the persistent myth of the solitary genius, many of today’s most beloved narratives come from a roomful of writers. Students in this class will write short fiction in a highly-collaborative class environment.  As a group, we will generate ideas and respond to a variety of high-energy writing exercises designed to jump start each student’s personal creative vision. In addition to group-brainstorming, students will support each other’s writing by giving feedback in the form of full-class and small-group workshops, and the entire class will collaborate on an introduction to an anthology of stories to which each class member will contribute. Students in this class will learn the basics of fiction writing, develop their collaboration skills, and gain confidence in their creativity.  

Instructor: Emma Catherine Perry
