Service Description

This writing class will focus on preparing students to enter for one or more categories of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Students will receive individual instruction and feedback from the teacher, while also being free to work on a creative product of their own design. They can choose from a wide variety of categories, including: Critical Essay Dramatic Script Humor Journalism Poetry Personal Essay  Novel Writing Students will work on their writing skills, with the goal of creating a unique piece of writing which can be entered for a chance to win a Scholastic Award. Our course is designed to impart writing and deep thinking skills that will stay with students beyond the final lesson. Therefore, this class also functions as a writing workshop for students whose goals may transcend this awards season and be focused on other competitions, college applications, or research journals. As students work to produce a unique piece of writing, they will also develop a unique sense of self and who they are as a writer. Writing Skills 1.
