Creative Writing for Non-Native English Speakers

Course description:

Creative writing advances your English writing skills. It's proven that play improves learning by 80%. Creative writing allows you to explore characters, plot, scene, and dialogue—all the things that happen in real life. It will open your skill sets to new ways of exploring the English language.

Teaching approach:

This is an individualized class. We will work one-on-one in a shared google doc with weekly zoom meetings to discuss your ideas and progress.

Choose your medium, novel, novella, memoir, poetry, or creative non-fiction. Choose your audience, children, young adult, adults.

Together, we will create an outline and work on your manuscript as you watch your writing skills soar!
