Creative Writing

Curriculum Overview

Creative Writers study story structure, poetry forms and writing techniques. In advanced classes, students perfect the craft of revision and learn from each other in workshop groups. Students organize and perform in our school-wide poetry slams and story slams, collaborate on plays and films, and contribute to and edit our literary blog and print anthology.
