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

This course is designed to take the student two months from beginning to end. With the self-paced, complete-it-as-you-go format, your teenager can take it slow if they need more time finish each lesson or speed up and complete the lessons ahead of schedule. This allows you to customize the course depending on their learning speed and lifestyle. You can hit pause on sick days and pick up right where you left off.
I liked the side quests a LOT they were really fun, especially the one with the pirates! And I liked learning about the parts of a story! - Belle, Student age 12
Students will read two books, the classic Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson and the indie book, The Wendy by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown. Many of the classical books we read are available for free. The indie book is not included for free.

I'm a professional copywriter, a homeschool graduate, and published short story author. I live in Northern Idaho with my family, my big dog and a small flock of quail. I am a business consultant and copywriter for a design and marketing agency. When I'm not writing or reading something, you can find me painting birds or gardening.
I created the Story Quest Academy because I have a genuine passion for fiction writing, empowering young writers to tell their stories and sharing what I've learned from nine years as a professional writer. I believe everyone has a story to tell and I want to help them say it well.
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.
