Writing Club


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

Are you an aspiring author? Do you love to write stories, poems, plays, songs, or (gasp!) even essays? The new Excelsior Classes Writing Club is the place for you! We will meet twice a month to share writing (optional), learn exciting and useful writing tricks and techniques, encourage each other, hear from professional authors, and even play games. The club will be fun, inspirational, and enriching! (And let’s be honest: It will look good on your college application someday and provide you opportunities for leadership roles.)

We will have an organizational/introductory meeting on Friday, December 2, from 4-5 p.m. ET. If you can’t make that first meeting, it’s okay, but we will get to know each other, plan activities for the rest of the year, and vote on an official name for our club (because, really, a group of writers can do better than “Writing Club,” right?).

Our regular meetings will be from 4-5 p.m. ET on the following Fridays: January 13 & 27, February 10 & 24, March 10 & 24, and April 7 & 21.

Dawn Burnette is truly excited to be part of the Excelsior family as an English teacher! Dawn holds a B.A. in English Education/Journalism from Lenoir-Rhyne University and an M.A. in English Education from Georgia State University. She has also earned National Board Certification and gifted endorsement. While teaching English at a public high school for 15 years, Dawn served as English department chair, coached a nationally ranked dance team, and won a few local, state, and national teaching awards. Dawn loves sharing her passion for reading and writing, and she works tirelessly to help students reach their academic potential and to glorify God in all pursuits. Soli Deo Gloria!

When it was time for their children to start school, Dawn and her husband Rod moved the family from an Atlanta suburb to the North Georgia mountains, acquired way too many animals, and spent the next 12 years homeschooling. Their daughter Ansley recently graduated from Samford University with a double major in English and Theatre, and their son Beck is a Communication major on a golf scholarship at Lee University.
