Information Creative Writing is a semester long, advanced writing course for students who enjoy writing and want to improve their composition skills.

You will be required to write and read daily.

You will maintain a writer’s notebook where you will experiment with a variety of writing genre:
*short stories
*script writing

Creative writers are, by nature, readers; therefore, you will read and analyze short stories, novels, and poetry as guides to develop your own writing.

You will be required to share your writing in small groups and with the class. Description Miss Rushenberg Course
