Fiction Writing

Feb 12 Fiction Writing

At Mysa School, we believe in encouraging a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Our Fiction Writing program is a fantastic opportunity for students to explore their creativity and develop their writing skills in a supportive and engaging environment.  

Students in elementary, middle and high school are working on an exciting fiction writing program to build their creative abilities and deepen their understanding of narrative form.

Using the Nanowrimo curriculum and the Fabula Storytelling card deck, our program is designed to help students develop their writing skills in a fun and collaborative environment. Each day, students engage in a new lesson on a different part of their novel, from the set up to the climax, all the way to the resolution.

But we don’t stop there! Our program uses post-its to help students write in short bursts, experiment with different ideas, and move things around if they don’t work. This means students can rewrite their stories without the anxiety of staring at a blank Word document.

We also do workshop experiments to help students explore different aspects of their story, such as complicating conflicts and exploring themes. And to promote collaboration, students brainstorm, write, and share their work with each other every day.

Our ultimate goal is to produce 20 to 50-page short novels by the end of the year, which will be published for everyone to enjoy. And last year, we even had some parents who are published authors come and review the student work, giving feedback and discussing their own experiences in the publishing industry.

We can’t wait to share our stories with you!
