In this course, students sharpen their creative writing skills while developing their voices. Students explore various elements of storytelling through fun writing exercises on setting, dialogue, and voice. In addition, students experiment with the creation of imaginative storytelling through poetry, flash fiction, and short stories. This class offers students a chance to develop their creative writing and to compose in a variety of genres. Students also benefit from sharing ideas, offering constructive criticism, and presenting their work to their peers.

Tracy Edward Wymer grew up in Missouri and Indiana. He spent most of his childhood riding his bike, playing neighborhood Wiffle ball games, and reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory over and over again. He is the author of Soar and The Color of Bones, and he is part of the anthology Been There, Done That: Writing Stories from Real Life. When not plowing through stacks of books on his nightstand, he likes to run, write, look for birds, and root for the Kansas City Royals. A long-time educator, Tracy lives with his family in Los Angeles.
