Fiction Meets Reality

Current events and creative writing for 8th and 9th grade girls

This class combines the advanced fiction-writing elements of “The Heroine’s Journey” with the real world content of “Our World, My Voice.” Each week students will read and discuss a current events article concerning a relevant and appropriate topic. Students will be offered a variety of fiction and reflective writing prompts as a way of addressing the day's topic. In this format, students continue to explore their unique, creative voice with an awareness of the bigger world we share. Students will always have time to share and receive feedback. We follow the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, and that all feedback must be positive.

To learn more about us, check out our list of 7 Frequently Asked Questions, our Note for Parents, the feedback from both parents and girls, and our Our Commitment to Girls.

Note: Our offerings are so unique, the best way to experience the magic of the Intuitive Writing Project is to have your daughter try one of our classes. But before she attends a class, it can be helpful to schedule a short phone chat. This way we can learn more about your daughter's interests and make sure we find the best-fit program to meet her unique needs. We are here to support you in the heroic work of being a parent!


Classes start the first week of December (after Thanksgiving break) and run through the end of February. (There will be no classes over winter break or any other school holiday.)

Fiction Meets Reality classes are available Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays after school. The final schedule will be determined by those enrolled.
