The Creative Writer Level 4
reviews the skills taught in Levels 1-3 while adding more advanced skills and tips for "the writing life." Students will learn how to find time to write, how to maintain discipline, how to deal with rejection, and about submitting to literary journals. The latter provides the primary goal of the curriculum: a story and poem polished enough to submit. The first level without a mentor section, this curriculum is designed to be used independently, though an outside reader is encouraged. Chapters include a discussion of the topic, an assignment, and a concluding challenge exercise. The poetry section features polishing instruction on word choice and revision, sound, forms, nonsense, and poetry as a public exercise.
Designed for older students, the readings increase in maturity as well. Parents may wish to preview selections for younger students using this curriculum. The Creative Writer Level 4: Becoming a Writer will provide guide students towards becoming a true writer. 36 weeks of instruction, divided between fiction and poetry. 240 pages, softcover. Grades 8-10.
