Jack Gantos

Short Story Session

This lesson focuses on my writing handbook for students: Writing Radar and how to set up the writer’s journal in order to capture great ideas from personal experience, how to write a first draft, and how to bring structure and the elements-of-writing together for a well-organized and polished story. Books covered include the Newbery Award Winning Dead End in Norvelt, the “Joey Pigza” series of novels and Audible “Joey Pigza” recordings, and the “Jack Henry” series of autobiographical short stories.
