Day & Time: Wednesday 1:45-2:55
Mentor: Jon Alston
There is so much more to creative writing than fun stories. It is about the study of language and how we communicate through reimagining our world with story. In this class, we will focus on how language works when we bend and break the rules, and how to use stories (both fiction and non-fiction) to teach lessons. We will write three main stories, and an assortment of short writing assignments.
