The Homeschool Buyers Co-op Proudly Presents...

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to present a GroupBuy for the new Second Edition of the One Year Adventure Novel writing curriculum from award-winning author Daniel Schwabauer, President & Founder of Clear Water Press.

Write A Novel in One Year!

The One Year Adventure Novel, Second Edition, curriculum guides students (grades 8-12) step-by-step through the process of writing a structured, compelling adventure novel over the course of one school year.

We have had several conversations with Daniel Schwabauer, the creator of the popular One Year Adventure Novel, and we think it's fair to say that Dan is passionate about giving students the training and support they need to become proficient creative writers.

To that end, he has released the new Second Edition of the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum and a host of support programs (forum, workshops, etc.) to guide your student through the process of creating his or her very first novel. (See below and on his website for more details.)

The new Second Edition has all-new re-filmed video lessons in higher quality video and audio, a more in-depth look at The Prisoner of Zelda, and expanded content addressing the sections of the First Edition One Year Adventure Novel about which students have been asking the most questions over the years!

If your student has already completed the One Year Adventure Novel, the Co-op is also pleased to offer GroupBuy savings up to 20% for Other Worlds, an expansion module to the One Year Adventure Novel for writing Science Fiction and Fantasy, which you can find here.

With Signature Co-op GroupBuy Savings!

By purchasing as a group, we will all save at least 10% and as much as 20% depending on how many One Year Adventure Novel, Second Edition, programs we order as a group.

In the words of my daughter and two sons who are using OYAN for the current school year, this is the best English curriculum ever! Though all three were formerly reluctant writers, my teens are now joyfully engrossed in creating their first novels while independently honing their writing skills; amazed, I am enjoying the ride. Also, equally amazing as their writing development is the depth of understanding that OYAN has brought to my family's appreciation and understanding of English literature. Dinner table discussions will never again be the ...(more)

I am glad I got the One Year Adventure novel for my 17 yr. old daughter. She decided to start this Summer, and is thoroughly enjoying every aspect that the OYAN offers. She is not only learning how to write better, but gets personal input from the Author and others who take this course. She has opportunity for additional writing adventures on the side as well as meeting peers with the same interests. This program has challenged, and excited her like no others have in the past. She is writing like crazy and enjoying every minute of it! She has...(more)

We are truly enjoying the One Year Adventure Novel. What a great way to engage students! Our 14-year-old is writing very interesting and creative scenes, as he learns the elements of a quality novel. The DVD presentations are top-notch, and the teacher's disc is very helpful. And we LOVE the full length novels included for our reading enjoyment. We recommend it to all budding writers, as well as reluctant writers.

OMGosh! "This is the most awesome course ever!" so says my teenage son. He is really turned on and engaged with this course. I had my doubts as to whether he would actually do the program. Now he asks to do it and he's writing!!!!

This is a superior product. Everything needed is there in the package. The DVD lessons are short (about 15 minutes each) and entertaining. The textbook reinforces the lesson from the video and the workbook has the student put into practice what they just learned. What the student writes in the workbook ...(more)

Regardless of the career path, writing well will pave the way. One Year Adventure Novel provides an all-inclusive writing program in a fiction landscape that builds writing skills and confidence. The side benefit is also a greater analytical skill when attacking literature. Easy to use, allows independent study, instructs parent clearly on how to grade and work with the student.
Erin L, Co-op Member
My 16 year old loves to write and has been begging me for a couple of years to buy the OYAN; so I was really excited to see it available, at a discounted price, through Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

My daughter loves the program, although following directions isn't something she is used to for creative writing. Although we have used writing curriculum and AP English Lang & Comp, we have never purchased a product specifically designed for writing a novel. I believe this product is unique in that it really takes you through all the steps necessary ...(more)

My reluctant writer has agreed to work on his writing over the summer - only if I allowed him to use the One-Year-Adventure-Novel... He's involved in the proces and seems to look forward to it. That says a lot in our family!
Tana R., Co-op Member
I had subscribed to receive Homeschool Buyer's Co-op emails before the summer. When OYAN came across, I read about it aloud to our 13-year old son.

He is a reluctant academic, doesn't do poorly in school but just doesn't love it. His enthusiastic response was all I needed. He loves to watch movies (what teenager doesn't!), read books and has a wild imagination with lots of ideas. He exclaimed an excited, "Yes! get that! That sounds awesome!" He was excited at the possibility of publishing something (and becoming famous!). I haven't o...(more)
Lynn, Co-op Member
My 14 year old daughter loves the program, although we've only been doing it for a few months. She enjoys the video lessons and how the program is organized, especially the specific instructions and worksheets that lay the foundation for the writing to come. She says she already feels prepared for writing her first novel!
Liz S., Co-op Member
I highly recommend the One-Year-Adventure-Novel (OYAN). It is so enjoyable that my daughter would do this course only--and not her other school subjects--if I let her. Not only is OYAN fun for my students, but it is also easy for me as the home school teacher to keep up with and grade. Compared with other writing curricula, OYAN stands as a substantial, academically rigorous, genre-specific, practical, skill-building course. In the past both my students have excelled at developing language arts and composition skills through courses from the ...(more)
