The purpose of this online course is to improve your fiction writing skills. Students will get specific feedback on their work and the material will range from basic paragraph structure to full essays. This six-week course focuses on short story/novel writing elements. Students will work their way towards writing a short story or beginning a full length novel. This course will focus on various elements of fiction writing: show don't tell, plot, and editing. Each piece turned in will be graded and given feedback using the comment feature on Microsoft Word. Ideal for all ages and all writing styles.
Each week there will be at least two assignments due. Students will be writing, revising and critiquing short stories throughout the course. By the end of the course students will be able to understand what it means to show something to their reader rather than tell it. Students work will be critiqued by the instructor and by their peers. This course will also help students find time for writing by exposing them to different writing strategies.
This seminar begins July 5th and runs for six weeks. This course is run by a certified English teacher. The course costs $450/student. This cost includes written feedback on all assignments and weekly progress reports.
