Overview

Do you like to think outside the box and express yourself in a creative way?  In this enrichment experience, we will focus on a new creative writing theme or genre each week: genres and elements of stories, poetry, comics/graphic novels, building suspense, characterization, and fantasy. Each week, we will learn together using imaginative exercises to spark our creativity, and you will hone your craft in between meetings through practice. We will even have a special guest!

This enrichment experience will meet weekly on Tuesdays at 9:00am. The session will run for six weeks starting the week of March 6th, with the week of 3/13 off.

Instructor will contact each enrolled student with more information, and a list of any required materials.

During this course, you will learn career-related skills and earn a badge for this accomplishment. A badge is a digital certification of your career-related learning that you can share on social media and higher education platforms, or with colleges, potential employers, peers, and colleagues.
