Online Creative Writing Classes
I come from a family of teachers. My mom, my aunt, and both grandmothers were teachers. So, of course, I wanted to be different and didn’t want to be a teacher. I think I was influenced partly by Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was one of my heroes, because she didn’t want to be a teacher either. But when I got to college, I decided maybe I would enjoy teaching.
Two years ago, I taught Freshman Composition at the college level, and I loved it. This year, I have been teaching creative writing to middle schoolers. I love sharing my knowledge and my passion for writing. The first opportunity I had to take a creative writing course was at the graduate level. I love giving kids the opportunities I didn’t have.
I recently found a platform where I can offer online classes. I’ve been teaching through Outschool for about two weeks, and I enjoy it so much. My students are creative and fun. They have such great story ideas! If you have a student between the ages of 8 and 16 who would like to take part in an online creative writing class, check out my Outschool page. I have a 5 week class called the Basics of Storytelling starting next week, one section for 9-12 year-olds and one for 12-16 year-olds. You can also contact me to let me know if there’s another class or another time that you’d like to see offered.
Outschool is only for students between 3 and 18, but I am considering offering online workshops for adults through a different platform. Let me know if you are interested!
