Class Description: Fantasy Writing Class for Kids
🦄 Lesson 1: Magical Creatures Big and Small!
Welcome to a world of MAGIC! Students will learn the elements of fantasy and identify them in literature. We will also discuss characters from popular fantasy stories and create our own magical main characters.
🏰 Lesson 2: Mapping Magical Worlds
World-building is a central part of fantasy! Magical realms just around the corner. A portal into a new place and time. An enchanted kingdom. It’s your turn to create and draw a map of your fantasy world. We will discuss fantasy settings and maps from popular literature, like Harry Potter’s Marauder’s Map.
🔮 Lesson 3: Spells & Potions
No fantasy story is complete without an enchantment or two.
(Just ask Harry Potter…)
A hero without magic? That just won’t do.
You’re writing a fantasy,
So stir up a potion for me and conjure a spell for you!
🧙♂️ Lesson 4: Quest Success!
Take your magical main character on the ultimate journey! Raise the stakes and create conflict at every turn. Students will use the “create your own adventure” model to practice writing conflict. Finish writing and editing fantasy stories.
I have 24 years of writing and editing experience, including three years as a writing instructor. I love helping kids learn new skills while having fun along the way!
