CLASS DESCRIPTION:

This creative writing class explores the genre of open-ended stories and adventures, such as we find in computer games. Throughout the semester students will create their own Minecraft adventure quest. We will discuss character development and dialogue writing, which the students will put to use in creating Minecraft NPCs (non-player-characters). We will discuss plot devices and ways of providing backstory. We will talk as well about how famous authors used different literary techniques.

All students will require Minecraft for PC/Mac.
