Teacher

Laura Blake

Prerequisite

75% in English 11.

Description

Join us in Writing 12, a new course designed at SIDES. Writing 12 is a creative writing course, and we will read and write contemporary poetry, short fiction and creative nonfiction. For students with a particular interest in another genre (such as screenwriting or documentary writing), we offer the option of completing an independent study instead of Unit Five.

We will emphasize creative writing exercises to help students generate fresh language and ideas, and will guide students to compose creative pieces which are personally meaningful and worthy of publication. As part of the drafting and revision process, students will be expected to participate in at least two online Writing Workshops.

The course consists of five units:
