During the spring semester of 2023, students in ISP's Creative Writing ECA worked with Noah Weisz to complete an ambitious collaborative creative writing project, the 50-page fantasy novella called "The Rracoette Revolution."
Read the overview below ... then read the whole novella!
A young merchant, the only one unafraid of the dark spirits that haunt the islands of Rracoette during the Season of Eclipses, is recruited by a group of rebels for a risky mission to the Capital. An irrepressible girl from the desert escapes the mines where she's been imprisoned and sets out on a quest for justice. A brilliant scientist hunts for a magical flower that could cure a mysterious disease and prove her skills to the world. And a neglected prince, lonely and disinterested in politics, has the sudden chance to change his destiny. These stories all intersect in a fantastical tale about friendship, courage, and standing up for what's right: "The Rracoette Revolution," written by the members of the ISP Creative Writing Workshop.
The story, written collaboratively by the students over three months, pushed these young writers to each develop their own fictional character's story yet work together to weave them into a single, coherent narrative. As they proudly reflected, the project posed unusual creative challenges and also gave them the chance to each discover their own skills and areas for growth, learn from each other's strengths, and relinquish full control over their ideas in the interest of making the story work as a whole. So check out the finished story...and dive into the dangerous, magical world of Rracoette!
