Featured Class: Prequel & Sequel Fiction Writing

Tweens and teens love prequels and sequels!

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
  • Jumanji: The Next Level
  • Wonder Woman 1984
  • Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian
  • Sometimes we love a character or story so much that we want it to keep going! Other times, we may want to explore the beginning, the back story, the ancestors, or childhood adventures of a favorite character.

    Middle schoolers will have fun writing original fiction around something they love! In this class, students will continue a beloved story through the creation of a before or after, borrowing and elaborating on characters, setting, and key plot details.
    The class will survey well-known prequels and sequels and will examine popular storylines as a possible “formula” for composing their original fiction. Students will work on one fiction piece over the duration of the quarter and will celebrate by having their work published in a bound class anthology.

    Formula for Fiction: Prequels and Sequels begins on Friday, January 10. Register for this class or others today!
