This is a year long course taught in two semesters. Classes are designed to support the student in completing a novella of their own making by the end of two semesters with a printed physical copy. Although students will edit each other’s work as part of this course, this is not an editing class! This is a creative writing course that presents the art of story telling, character development, plot structure, brainstorming and using the imagination. Students will have a completed novella only by participating in both semesters. Being self motivated is key to success in a completed book. Lessons are progressive over the course of the year. The result is a printed copy of the student’s work at the end of the year. This is a non-graded course.
