Do you have a teen who sits in his or her bedroom creating stories? Would this teen rather live in imaginary worlds than in the “real” one?

Why not equip your writer to succeed?

Writing Fiction [in High School] teaches teens about the elements of fiction writing they need to get published: point of view, characterization, setting, plot, description, conflict, empathetic characters, ramping up the conflict, and much more.
