English 12: Creative Writing

Upper School

Grade 12


Credits: .5

Students will write poems, short stories, plays, and personal, narrative and descriptive essays, and engage in experimental writing in order to produce a portfolio of edited, polished, ready-for-publication work.

Students should expect to write every day for this course, and there will be some short readings about technique. The class will be a writing workshop, and all voices are necessary. Readings will include writers who write in their own unique ways and writers who provide useful lessons on the craft. An edited portfolio of publication-ready works is the final product of this course.
