Journey Through the Capitol - Module 2

This module parallels the events of Rebuilding Arcadia - Chapter 3. You will learn to write detailed descriptions of urban and rural settings and further develop your character from Module 1. No writing experience is needed.

 Teachers are available, if you should choose a more interactive role-playing option.  

Lessons are published in a drip-feed cycle. This means you'll only see one or two lessons, when you first sign-in to your account. You'll get an email when new lessons are available.
