Creative Writing – March 22, 29, April 5 (no participation limit) Jonna Kusky, John Marshall High School AP teacher, will guide her class in writing, assisting each person in developing their story telling style. Participants will seek inspiration by reading and discussing mentor texts in a variety of mediums, recognizing patterns and plot structures of mentor texts, brainstorming and freewriting to generate story ideas, designing a plot structure for their story, labeling their plot structure, creating an extended moment at the climax of their story, traveling through creative stations to improve their story, learning ways to publish their story for others to enjoy, and finding ways to continue writing. The course goal will be for participants to have produced at least one text that tells a story of personal significance.

SHOWCASE OF TALENTS – May 24 Class participants from all phases will gather to share their newly found knowledge in a culminating showcase.

This project is supported with funding from West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History.
