What I Offer:

For middle school and high school students who enjoy writing poetry, stories, lyrics, skits, this class gives them an opportunity to immerse themselves in learning new creative writing skills and writing new poetry and stories in a positive and safe environment with other creative writers their same age. Separate classes for middle school and high school students.

See my website for more information, sample format, sample lessons, student writing, and comments.
