One Year Adventure Novel , otherwise know as OYAN, is a writing program to help kids write. The goal of OYAN is to write a novel with twelve chapters. OYAN is for kids in high school, but the creators,who are Mr. and Mrs.S, are coming out with a curriculum this summer for the kids in middle school.
OYAN has a forum where the kids can get to know each other and find friends. The forum lets the students connect with the teachers Mr. and Mrs.S. Through the OYAN forum, the kids can upload parts of their book to get critiques from other students.
The people on the forum can actually meet each other in person, because every year there is an OYAN workshop. At this workshop, the kids get to hear real writers and publishers talk and give them advice. Also the writers sell their books and sign them for you to read. Many of the kids who have been on the forum get better at writing every day.
To all the wanna-be writers out there, One Year Adventure Novel is what you need.
