Unbound: Teen Creative Writing

Unleash your creativity as a writer, while learning the tricks of the trade. You have the freedom to write what you want, but you also gain the discipline of writing craft.
 
There are no grades, no exams, no wrong answers—just creative writing. Each class is taught by a teacher adept at helping young writers discover and develop their unique voices. The idea is to explore—see with a writer’s eyes, spark ideas to life, gain confidence, and experiment with both fiction and nonfiction.
 
Better writers produce stronger college applications, and an extracurricular writing class is an impressive addition to any profile. When you know how to express yourself well with words, you’ve got a special power.
