To find out more about our Creative Writing courses, please take a look at the appropriate video that explains them. It can be found at the top right after clicking LOWER SCHOOL HERE or UPPER SCHOOL HERE .
Discover the many ways a writer can make a living! Learn the basics of the writing of novels and short stories, playwriting, screenwriting, PR (public relations), and other types of writing. What sort of writer would you like to be? This course will help you make that key discovery.
The fifth Creative Writing Course presumes that the student now knows how to write well. This course teaches the student about the different areas in "the field" (the world) where a living can be made as a writer. These include the writing of poetry, lyrics, public relations, screenplays, plays, television series, and creative nonfiction, or technical writing. The student is exposed to the most important and basic tools and concepts in each area, and then writes new works that develop his or her expertise in each of these possible areas of employment for a writer. The student is also exposed to a few key tools used by writers to secure work.
Once the student has written a work he or she is proud of, we provide a free service here on our site where they can "publish" the work for the world to see, surrounded in appropriate art work and ready to share with family, friends, and admirers around the world! (See HERE)
This course comes with a Teacher's Guide (again, this reads almost like the second part of a professional writers course), which will help the teacher keep students moving. A semester to a year of study. This course requires no additional materials. 60 lesson plans, 80-120 hours of work. An indispensible introduction to professional writing!
