Teacher(s)

Laura Blake

Prerequisite

75% in English 11

Description

In Creative Writing 12 students 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. This is an academic course for which you need a strong foundation in English writing skills.

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.

The course consists of five units:

  • Poetry: the basics
  • Short Fiction
  • Poetry: sound and image
  • Creative Nonfiction
  • Independent Study or Poetry
