In creative writing, we are exploring our hand at a variety of genres: poems/spoken word, short stories, one-acts/plays, and creative nonfiction. We spend our time completing specific, focused writing and brainstorming tasks, studying different aspects of the writing craft, and providing feedback on each others’ work. The best way to learn the art of creative writing is to write often, so we write a lot. We have weekly assignments that culminate in a revision project at the end of each unit. We use Heather Seller’s “The Practice of Creative Writing,” which posits that good creative writing is characterized by imagery, energy, tension, pattern, and insight. As we write, we are learning what those terms mean exactly 🙂
