Writers Workshop

This course serves as an introductory-level creative writing workshop. You’ll explore and develop your own voice across various genres, including poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, spoken word, visual or multimodal media and/or hybrid mediums. You’ll read, share and constructively critique each other’s work in a supportive writing community and build toward composing a final portfolio of creative work. The workshop culminates in a class reading that's open to family and friends. 

Who Should Register 

This course is for incoming ninth to 12th graders who are interested in creative writing and eager to gather with peers to share inspiration, ideas and approaches to writing. Creative writing experience is not necessary. This course is not for those who need remedial writing help, and all students should have a high level of English language proficiency.

Instructor
