Creative Writing (Virtual)

Micro-School
98116

We'll collaborate on a group chapter book, with each of us contributing a character. As our story evolves, so will our characters! We’ll go over character development, tone, motivations, and challenge ourselves to think from different perspectives. At the end of the enrichment, each participant will receive a digital copy of our chapter book.

CREATIVE SAFE-SPACE:

We are all responsible for keeping our sessions a creative safe-space. Please be respectful of the ideas of other players. The golden rule: treat others how you want to be treated.

Everyone should feel invited and welcome to participate in our group, and that means making room for everyone to try out different ideas.

10/3 Introduction, Set-Up & Character Creation

We’ll go over the basics and expectations. Then we’ll make a decision on the setting for our story. After that, we’ll start character creation and go over the Character Bio together.

10/10 Character Introductions, Chapter 1 Brainstorm

Introduce our characters. How do we come together in a story? How do we meet in the first chapter?

10/17 Chapter 1

Our story gets going. Are we getting along? Is anyone making the journey difficult or better?

10/24 Chapter 2

Our first story conflict! We’ll have to navigate the problem as a team.

10/31 Halloween Event

Our story will most certainly take a spooky turn in this session.

11/7 Chapter 3

Someone is hypnotized and tries to betray the group! How will our characters react?

11/14 Chapter 4

The group goes on an intense mission together.

11/21 Chapter 5

We are reaching the end of our book! What will the climax of our story be? It’s time to decide.

11/28 Final Chapter

This is where we share each of our character’s endings, and where they go from here.

12/5 Holiday Event

What holiday does your character celebrate? Do they want to share anything with the group about their holiday? Our characters will have a farewell party to end our story.

Taught by Hannah Hollmann

Background Check Confirmed

Hi, I’m Hannah! I’m 29 years old, and have worked in direct childcare for five years with two years experience nannying. I graduated from Washington State University in 2013 with a B.A. in English and a Global Leadership Certificate.

Most recently, I was a Co-Lead teacher of an After School Program that went virtual when our school district closed down. For the rest of the school year, I led meeting games, Dungeons & Dragons, and other meet-ups and activities over Zoom. This led to the development of the role-play adventures that I am offering here!

It is important to me that each child feels valued, listened to and encouraged to be their best selves. I seek to create age-appropriate safe spaces for children to use their imaginations, and expand on their unique interests.
