This course is open to students in grades 8-12 who want to explore the world of Creative Writing and the methods real writers use to "workshop" their manuscripts and get valuable feedback. Students will be guided in skills of constructive criticism and how to use such feedback in making their own work better. Students will turn in their own short story of between 5 and 10 pages early in the class and will read other student's work as well as receive multiple feedback forms from their peers and instructor. In addition, students will learn more about the techniques writers use in their work including dialogue tips, foreshadowing, descriptive and narrative language, and more!
