New for summer! Creative Writing Express for teens 13-19
Why do we tell stories? What makes them so captivating? What makes a good story?
Nothing is so memorable as a great story. Jesus, the greatest Storyteller of all, knew this truth! In this class, we will focus on classic storytelling with redemptive themes. In addition to gleaning from Boris Fishman’s The Creative Writer series (Well-Trained Mind Press), each week we will examine well-crafted passages from enduring stories, modeling specific elements and literary devices in our writing.
Whether your students are in the middle of writing a work of fiction or just beginning the creative process, this is a class that will help them hone their writing and produce a story worth reading. For teens 13-19.

Knights and Ladies, lords and citizens, men and...monsters?
Such characters and more come to life in the pages of British literature. These classics endure because of their timeless messages of the holiness of virtue, the selflessness of sacrifice, and the destructiveness of pride.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
A Tale of Two Cities
Pride & Prejudice
The Fellowship of the Ring
