Do you love coming up with stories? Have you always wanted to write out the secret stories that are swirling around your head? All great authors started somewhere. Join our secret society of writers. Working through instruction, video, quizzes, peer critique, class discussion and practice, we’ll cover all aspects of writing a short and longer work, including genre, setting, plot, characterization, and editing. At the completion of the year, students will have all the tools to finish their first novel.
An approximate 1-2 hours of homework per week is required for this class. How much more you time you spend on your passion is up to you.
This course is worth one year’s high school English credit on a student’s transcript.

**All Life Adventures activities & classes require an annual family registration. Once you’ve registered your family, to enroll in a class, pay the $10 enrollment fee and in the notes tell us the name and age/grade of the child you are enrolling. 2nd semester sign-ups will need to re-enroll their child through this process. The teacher will contact you within one week of enrollment to give class details and be available for questions.
