Creative Writing

​​​​Creative Writing


​​​​In Creative Writing, students will work on analyzing literature as to what makes it appealing to the target audience and employing those techniques through creation of children's books, short stories, and novels.  They will be using peer editing, self-analysis, and current examples to spark their creations.  One thing we have realized is that it is one thing to have an idea but quite another to make it work on paper.​​

A good place to start practicing the ability of creating a story is storybird.com.​
