A sport on broomsticks, thoughts on skin like tattoos, 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 J.K. Rowling, Abby Cooper, Kwame Mbalia, Jacqueline West, Brian Farrey-Latz, 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. Then you'll take those pieces, add more "out of this world," and write your story. Get out of here and join this class!
