Writing II: Creative Writing

  • Writing Workshops

Grade Level: separate sections for rising 7–8 and rising 9–11

Get your “stories” out there! In this dynamic writing workshop, students will experience the benefits of creative expression through crafting and revising their own short stories and poems. All writers will be full participants in the “workshop” process; not only will they learn various exercises to help them free the writing muse, but they will also engage in the process of sharing and editing each other’s work in a positive environment. Discussions will be devoted to analysis of student work and that of professional writers. Students should expect to come away with a greater knowledge of the craft of writing, enhanced approaches to revising their work, and a far better understanding of their own unique writing style.
