Mrs. Jones' Creative Writing Class

Subject: 
English

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.

-Octavio Paz


Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.

-Boris Pasternak

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.
