About Course

This Creative Writing and Character Creation course was developed on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University, at the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship. The goal is to prepare more diverse students for the computer-related Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math (STEAM) jobs of the future.

This course explores creative writing and character creation. The coursework is based on a Hip-Hop Jazz Fusion album project done in partnership with the music department at Carnegie Mellon University.
The lyrics and essays are the foundational basis for the instruction.

At Toyzsteam we use hip-hop culture, comic books, global cultural exposure, entrepreneurship, and music to engage students. Students receive 30 assignments that range from essay writing, poetry, and comic book writing.

Our textbook is available on Amazon and Apple.
