Creative Writing II Honors: Screenwriting and Nonfiction Honors

Description

Narratives and stories are how we explain the world to others and to ourselves, and language is how we create worlds of our own to share with readers and audiences. Through writing exercises, class discussion, video clips, readings, and extensive feedback, students will explore how screenwriting and creative nonfiction achieve their effects. Each student will complete a portfolio that includes a short film script, portions of a feature film script, and personal essays on topics of their choice, and will submit selected pieces to magazines such as Teen Ink. This is a Semester 2 course. Creative Writing I is NOT a prerequisite to enroll.
