SENIOR ENGLISH CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPGrade: 12Prerequisite: NoneCredit: 0.5 per semesterPlease visit my website:
Where does the impulse to write come from? Why do people put thoughts onto paper for others to read? This course, designed as a reading and writing workshop, will capture your creative spirit by providing opportunities to experiment with writing in many forms. Students will read classical and contemporary texts to inform and inspire the writing process, and they will work independently and collaboratively to create and revise original pieces. The course will bring writing to life through nontraditional and conventional projects, such as an online ‘zine, time capsule, radio play, screenplay, genre emulation, poetry portfolio, flash fiction and memoir writing. All students must be open to sharing their work with the class.
