OYAN stands for One Year Adventure Novel. It's a writing curriculum in which the student writes a full length adventure novel over the course of one school year.
"... guides students (grades 8-12) through the process of writing a structured, compelling adventure novel over the course of one school year. The program's unique approach to writing begins where many writing courses don't go at all, with an exploration of Story."
I can say without any hestiation at all that OYAN has not only changed my writing, it's changed my life. It is far, far more than just a writing curriculum.
But it's not just the writing curriculum, it's the OYAN community. The OYAN Forum has brought together brilliant teenage writers who have a passion for story, and a passion for God. And when I say brilliant teenage writers, I really mean brilliant. These teens can write better than some adults! And not just novels, but poems, songs, screenplays, and skits.
OYAN is legendary. The world may not know it yet, but it is.
