How to Use This Course

Do you have a child who loves to write? How about a reluctant writer? Creative Storytelling incorporates activities to engage them both. The course begins with a look at what creative writing is and then moves into character development, plot development, setting, and more. Students will have the foundation for a book or story in place when they complete the class.

Course Introduction

Each weekly Creative Storytelling lesson is broken into two separate lessons. Each lesson continues building on a concept being explored and gives the student time to write imaginatively on a wide variety of topics and in a broad assortment of styles. From completing detailed character charts to writing their autobiography, writing a short story, or drafting a letter for a great grandchild, these writing lessons are wonderful ways to engage even the most reluctant writers.
