Creative Writing Lessons

Journey through the Capitol

Here’s a snapshot of our interactive creative writing course!

Journey through the steampunk world of Arcadia! You can experience Arcadia through the eyes of the people who live there. You’ll develop your writing skills through a ‘choose your own adventure’ style experience. You’ll also write from different character perspectives. Your teacher will give you multiple options (some are listed below) and role-play with you.

To say I was confused was an understatement – memories and emotions fragmented and merged – I felt like I was on a bridge to nowhere. Perhaps my existence had more in common with the sewers and underground tunnels of Neverwhere than with reality? All I could do was step forward…

I hate this. Underneath everything I can feel it – that cold shudder you get when you know you’re being dragged through filth, but you just can’t prove it…

Discover Arcadia with TAYLOR

Papa’s coat rubbed on my neck – I hated that old thing.  I left it near the barbed wire fence at the border.  Sorry, Papa – You told me the Capitol was a dark, bad place… but when I saw the gardens, the color, the people – I cried.  It felt beautiful.
