Monsters and Greek gods, a sport on broomsticks, a world that opens up with a punch of a tree. All good stories that are not real, that can’t really happen. In this class, we’ll dig into authors like Rick Riordan, J.K. Rowling, Jacqueline West, Kelly Barnhill, Kwame Mbalia, and more in order to explore “out-of-this-world” fiction, stories that can absolutely, positively not happen in real life. Then we’ll dig into the essential pieces of a novel: setting, characters, conflict, dialogue, etc. Finally, you'll combined those two aspects and write your own "out-of-this-world" story. Get out of your world and join this class!
