Meet weekly online with other teens who love writing. We’ll explore writing fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. We’ll write in class as well as have a weekly writing assignment. Every week we will learn about writing craft, practice writing techniques, and listen to each other’s work — and of course, we’ll write! Drawing on the work of contemporary and classic writers as well as our own lives and imaginations, we will experiment with many elements of creative writing, from metaphor and sound-play to dialogue and voice. Instructor Becca Hall writes fiction, essays and poetry, and will share experience from her own writing practice as well.
This is not a class focused on ripping apart or critiquing each other’s writing (or for that matter, on punctuation and grammar), but a safe space to write about what matters to you, plumb the limits of your imagination, challenge yourself, try new forms and techniques, and develop your voice as a writer and a human being.
4:00-5:00 PST Wednesdays, January 6th — June 9th
Ages 12 to 18
