Cover Story takes middle school students – 6th through 9th grade – on a guided tour through the universe of Story. Through the process of creating the content for their own magazine in a single school year, students are led, step by step, on a fun, thought-provoking journey of exploration and creation. They write poems, short stories, non-fiction articles, letters, and many other short pieces.
They also learn to journal every day by following the creative structure of The Remarkable Journal of Professor Gunther Von Steuben. Along the way, they study not just a story’s form, but its execution.
The program covers poetry, short stories, creative non-fiction, interviews, blogs, letters, and much more in video lessons taught by a professional writer.
The informative course is built around the idea that writing is an inherently fun activity when approached through the doorway of a student’s creative passion. No matter how much your middle school student might already know about writing, Cover Story will challenge them to go deeper.
Light steampunk themes, writing prompts with a twist, and fascinating concepts all help to keep your student engaged. Your student will never look at writing the same way again.

Write a Novel in One School Year!
The One Year Adventure Novel writing curriculum guides students (grades 8–12) step by step through the process of writing a compelling, fully structured novel in one school year. Video-based and self-directed, it is ideal for home school students but also works in co-ops and schools.
Young writers, no matter how much natural talent and discipline they have, need training in understanding Story—what makes a story work. With honesty, passion, and humor, author Daniel Schwabauer takes students behind the scenes of novel-writing. Learn more here.
