Student-Authors present novels

Students in Caleb Paull’s creative writing class each hosted lunchtime discussions about their novels that they spent all of first semester writing. “Dr. Paull helped me grow as a writer for basically my entire time in high school and writing a novel really just feels like another challenge that he helped me get through,” senior Maya Martinez Diers said, before introducing her novel about the Jewish myth of Lilith the First Woman, which was written entirely in verse. The class worked together to develop ideas, create characters, sharpen dialogue, and give structured feedback. The curriculum was adapted from National Novel Writing Month and the Young Writers Program. The students also have the opportunity to create covers for their novels and have them printed.
