Mrs. Jones' Creative Writing Class
To grow your mind, change your words.
This will be our mantra for the 2021-2022 school year.
Language is what makes us human. It is a recourse against the meaningless noise and silence of nature and history.
Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.
Crreative writing is about studying words: our own and the words of others. Language is a fundamental part of our everyday lives. We need it to communicate, think and learn. Literature is where we find information, enjoyment, and inspiration. This class will be rigorous, but I will be teaching students to be gritty. You will learn that success comes not from giving up, but by changing their words.
