WRITING WIZARDS

Students write and publish their own novel.

In Writing Wizards, we foster a love of writing by guiding students to write and publish their own real book! Using novels like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia as inspiration, each student works with a partner to design a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, fantastic settings, an extended backstory and a world of wonder.  The authors use artwork to brainstorm plot twists and dynamic characters. Teachers guide students by providing contextual mini-lessons on writing techniques that include the use of appropriate dialogue, detailed descriptions, sensory-rich word choice, and character, plot and theme development.   At the end of the course, students publish their first real novel —signed by our Writing Wizards!
