  • Readers Club

Each week participants will receive a short story to read in English. When we meet, we will discuss the story, not only in terms of meaning and significance, but with an eye to craft and the techniques of writing fiction. The short stories will range broadly in genre across realism, science fiction, fantasy, comedy, and magical realism, among others, and prioritize marginalized writers and underrepresented perspectives. Perfect for students who want to learn to write fiction by studying the short story, as well as anyone who just wants to improve their English and loves to read!

  • Conversation Club

A club for all levels of English speakers. Each week we will center our discussion around a new topic and explore the English language in a relaxed environment. Weekly topics may include health, hobbies, cultural differences, philosophy, favorite movies, or another suggested topic. Whether you are an advanced English speaker, or just beginning to learn the language and have many questions, everyone is welcome to join us!

We will go over the fundamentals of writing true, first-person stories and brainstorm together.

    • Developing Oral Skills: Making a Persuasive Argument
      Participants will learn strategies such as critical thinking, media analysis, media literacy, and online research in order to create and deliver a strong persuasive argument. We will watch videos and read essays to study how others create meaningful sociological arguments. Recommended for students with intermediate to advanced English skills.
    • Planning and Drafting: Short Story
      Before beginning to write a short story, many writers must spend time setting themselves up for success. This includes organizing their time, building strong habits, and planning out aspects of their story in advance. Together in class we will go through a series of exercises to envision the world, characters, central conflict, stakes, goal, logline, theme, and beats of your story. Thursdays will be reserved for in-class writing and I will be available to answer any questions as they arise during the drafting process. By the end of the class, students will have a strong outline and the tools they need to complete a short story.
