Made With You in Mind
Do you have a child who loves writing?
Passion for Fiction is designed for kids who can’t stop writing or who are dying to write stories but would like a little guidance.
This class is not for reluctant writers. It’s for the kids who fill their journals or start new stories on the computer almost daily or imagine full-scale fantasies but have no audience.
Students won’t submit a completed work of fiction in this class. We isolate specific skills using exercises and writing processes to enhance their fiction-writing prowess. Students will have the tools to create, revise, and edit a full-length story after class is done.
Why a fiction class?
What are your students learning when they write and revise fiction? Glad you asked!
- Attention to detail: word choice, analysis
- Clarity: ideas that translate well
- Voice: knowing your audience and appropriate tone
- Structure: formats, paragraphs, chapters
- Planning: research, vision of the piece
- Point of view: inhabiting different perspectives
We consider fiction writing essential preparation for writing a persuasive argument, timed reflection essays, or college admissions papers.
Writers need community.
Kids want EXPERIENCES, not just assignments. We see the biggest impact when students get to fully participate in the stuff of life, together! Our aspiring fiction writers need a place to share their enthusiasm.
This class offers a unique student-to-student conversation space for young writers to share their words!
Whether you live in a rural location, are traveling abroad or are homebound, there’s a community for your young writer, only a click away, every day.
