The Creative Writer, Level Two guides middle- and high-school students through an innovative, compelling series of exercises, each one designed to build your skill in the essential ingredients of fiction and poetry.

The Creative Writer, Level Three builds on the foundation laid in earlier volumes. Exercises scaffold on each other, empowering the writer to complete full creative pieces in both fiction and poetry.

Product Overview

Author:

In this creative writing curriculum for middle schoolers (roughly 6th- to 9th-grade), young writers of fiction and poetry learn vital skills such as point of view, characterization, plotting, dialogue, and description. Simple but innovative exercises encourage young writers to strengthen their vocabulary and become aware of the patterns of sentences.

Unlike most “how to write” books, The Creative Writer is designed to be used in a mentor/student relationship, with teaching, guidance, and evaluation tips provided for the mentor or teacher. The Creative Writer, Level One can be used as a complement to our non-fiction writing book, Writing With Skill, or it can be used on its own.

    Michelle Gold

    How do we determine which level is best for our homeschoolers? My daughter is in her 2nd year of High School and son in 2nd year of JHS. They both are using IEW for the 3rd year in writing but we heard amazing things about the Creative Writer!

    Is there a teacher manual that goes along with this? How do we evaluate students’ work?

      There is not a separate manual for the teacher. There are “Mentor Materials” (you’ll find them at the end of the Fiction section and at the end of the Poetry section) that give tips for teaching and evaluating each week’s exercises.

    Is there something in a similar vein for Elementary Ages? We’ve completed WWE y 1-3 but I realized I wasn’t helping my child build her writing skills. I have other questions about some bumps I have experienced using these for the last three years but I figured I would start there.

    Could The Creative Writer Level 1 be completed in a semester or would that be rushing the concepts too much? Are there any additional materials needed for Level 1?
