This is the ultimate course for those trying to get a grasp on their writing vision. From the basic structure of a story, to character development, world building, showing vs telling, and all the important ingredients that go into writing a great story.
JK Allen received her BA in Creative Writing and English
from Michigan State University. She wrote her first story when she first
learned how to write and hasn’t looked back since. Common writing themes that
can be found in her work address identity, everyday magic, and the type of
strength that can be found in ordinary people. Three of her short stories and
several poems are featured in anthologies, and Angelborn is her debut novel
coming out in 2018. She is currently working on the trilogy as well as several
shorts, while researching for a new series in the works. Her reading tastes are
as varied as the genres she enjoys writing, from Jane Austen to J.K. Rowling.
When she’s not writing, you can find her painting, drawing, or lost in another
world between the pages of a book. Or on Facebook.
She is the lead poetry editor for Catterfly Publishing, an artist and illustrator for OWS Creative Studios, and Chief Education Development Officer for our university.
