    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is, in all honesty, going to be the most memorable course that I have taken in high school. First, the coursework, though challenging, is not too stressful. We are given assignments (such as 'create a microfiction' or 'create a poem') that are not too specific, allowing us students to get really creative with what we write; giving us freedom to write what we want. It's honestly a liberating experience and, when we share our pieces, I get to see the world through my peer's eyes. Second, the teacher is absolutely amazing. She is probably one of the kindest souls I have ever met. She is so supportive of everything we do, she does not judge us in the slightest, and she shares a lot of her own writing and personal experiences with us, which inspires us and our writing. She is always encouraging us to be the best version of ourselves, never berating us for our writing styles or content, and if we ever need her (like sometimes at 10pm when we are alone and out of creative ideas or at 7am at school after a rough night and need just someone to talk to) she is always there for us because she cares about us as students and as people. I am going to be honest, there are days where I wish I could just be in that class for the entire day because being in that classroom makes me feel safe, like I can be who I want to be and not be judged. I feel at home with that class and I love it.

    Course highlights:

    We are not done with the course yet, but I think my favorite pieces that we have worked on were the microfiction and the short narratives. We started with the microfiction at the beginning of the semester, which was very challenging at first, but very useful. Through this experience, we have learned how to write a story in the least amount of words possible while still being descriptive and conveying emotion. This piece helped us write our narratives, giving our narratives life without putting in too much detail that would draw out our works and make them boring to read. Also, through this class, I have learned how to write in different perspectives, through different narrators, as well as how to polish my writing style and make the pieces I write more vivid in vocabulary and emotion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be yourself. Don't senor your writing for the sake of others. Break those walls that you have built to protect yourself and be vulnerable. As Ms. Nugent says "What happens in Creative Writing Class, stays in Creative Writing Class", meaning that what you create will never be shared among your peers that are not in your class, unless you share your pieces yourself. Honestly, it may be a little uncomfortable at first, but, as the course goes on, you will find it to be very liberating, helping you grow as a writer and a person.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely recommend this course because it helped me to grow as a writer in exceptional ways. Mrs. Nugent pushed me to write outside of my comfort zone, and in doing so, my abilities as a writer expanded exponentially.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part about the course was the freedom that it gave me as a writer. I was free to write about any topic that I desired, and I was able to choose which style of writing I wanted to work with. I learned that each piece of writing is unique, and although I may not love a certain piece, it doesn't make the work any less valuable or meaningful. This class truly taught me how to respect other writers whose genres were different from my personal preference.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you must be willing to think outside of the box. If you don;t have the best imagination, you have to be willing to tap into what you have blocked out and really learn how to think in unique ways. With that said, be sure to write formally as well, essays being one example, because that helps to maintain clarity and conciseness when writing imaginatively.
