Description

Writing with Hobbits teaches high school students how to improve their own creative writing by examining Tolkien’s literary elements in The Hobbit.

Jonathan Rogers will guide you on a journey through The Hobbit to learn how to create distinct character voices from Gollum’s grammatical peculiarities, observe how a single scene sets up and solves plot puzzles, and incorporate other genres—like travel writing—into your fiction.

Dr. Rogers has written The Wilderking Trilogy, The World According to Narnia, and other books.

Full series coming soon!
