Teen Fiction Online Writing Course Next Week!

Teen Fiction Online Writing Course Next Week!

I’m excited about the teen fiction online writing course I’m offering next week.   I’ve wanted to offer online writing courses and webinars for a while, but time, lack of tech-know how, and my personal perfectionism has prevented me from doing so.

Last summer I offered THIS writing course in my home to four eager preteen writers and though the course wasn’t “perfect,” it was a hit! I broke down the writing principles I’ve been learning over the last seven years into language and portions they could grasp. Though it was an intense class and at times their eyes glazed over, the sounds of their little fingers tapping on the keyboard as they put to practice what I’d just taught them was beautiful!

I’ve been teaching a creative writing course to 3rd -5th graders for several years now, and recently scaled down the course I’m offering online next week for their grade level. The results were some amazing crafted stories despite their age!

Here’s what one former student and up and coming author had to say:

“If you are thinking about publishing a book, she’s amazing. If you just want to write a story, she’s amazing. I highly recommend her classes.” – Katherine, 11 yrs old

Though I am flattered by the compliment, the truly amazing ones are my students!
