Introduction to Creative Writing
A solid introduction to Teaching Creative Writing. It covers the elements of good writing, the writing process, reading requirements, editing and peer editing forms, a study guide and a short test to make sure your students understand these fundamentals.
Poetry is the literary expression of the human heart. The specific theme that the author is writing about is expressed with vivid feeling and passion. The writer's purpose is to convey these feelings to the reader.

Creative Description in writing is as vital as the words themselves. In this section, students learn the importance of writing in a way that allows the reader to see. If your students can vividly create a mental picture for their readers, then they have succeeded!
What is a story without interesting characters? Not much. Here, your students will gain the knowledge they need to create characters their readers will care about. Think back on all your favorite books, how much did you like the main characters? Readers must connect and truly care about the characters in stories; that's when the writing is good!
Setting is very important when teaching creative writing. The setting of a story is the foundation on which the story is built. Creative settings involve making the reader feel as if they are really there.
Creative Writing Projects
As you know by now, I believe very strongly in the importance of hands-on projects in the classroom. Creative Writing is no different. On this page you will find a number of tested, fun projects to engage your students.
The ability to write about one's self, one's life, one's experiences, and one's feelings are a crucial component of being a fantastic writer. This section gives students plenty of practice on opening up with paper and pencil.
