Journal/Creative Writing Documents

Creative Writing and Literary Journal Syllabi


Mrs. Wilhite



Creative Writing is a personal, aesthetic, experiential writing course in which students discover their own artistic voice and progressively model their own writing after published works in several genres including poetry, personal narrative, creative nonfiction, short fiction, and short plays.  The course is conducted as a workshop which provides a forum for discussion and critique of published works as well as students’ original works.


Literary Journal students produce the Millington High School literary magazine, Stacks. This is a creative writing class in which students are expected to judge writing and art submissions, edit creative writing, create page layouts on computer software, handle sales and advertising, and meet deadlines. Each student in the class must submit at least one original work of art or writing. Students also develop creative writing skills through original works.
