Step 1: Adventure Quest

Step 1: Adventure Quest

Do you have a daydreamer, a voracious reader or creative kid?

Adventure Quest is a self-paced 8 week creative writing course is filled with fun activities like drawing a map, creating story playlists, and writing poetry. Students are given prompts to write and edit a short story and education on outlining, capitalization, punctuation and a whole lot more!

We designed this course to help your student grow with step-by-step education about the writing process from planning to editing. We teach practical application of their endless creativity.

I liked that it addressed problems that are NEVER addressed anywhere else, like the writers block, and how to focus better. The story planning was good too, and it helped me lay out my story. - Dalton, Student age 14
StoryQuest was very responsive and helpful when we encountered any difficulty. And it was great to see my kids enjoying a writing class so much! - Janice D. Parent

Why Does It Work?

Story Quest Academy courses appeals to the five different learning styles: Auditory, Verbal, Visual, Logical, or Kinesthetic AND the different types of writers: Planners and Explorers.

  • Audio lessons for auditory learners
  • Written lessons for the verbal and logical learners
  • Worksheets and drawing activities to help visual learners visualize the topic
  • Hands-on activities for physical or kinesthetic learners
  • Prompts and worksheets to get the planners from the daydreaming stage to the writing stage
  • Short versions of the worksheets to keep the explorers interested and lessons on story structure to help them write better stories
My goal is to help kids LOVE stories, boost their imagination, and cultivate their creativity.

Evaluation vs Grades

It can be hard to know whether something was an A+ story or a B- and a grade doesn't give much information for your student to know where they need to improve their story.

At Story Quest Academy, we think constructive feedback is the best way to grow as a writer which is why we provide you will evaluation questions to help you provide feedback on your writer's story in thirty minutes or less!
