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)

This truly is an AMAZING program. My oldest was a reluctant writer, but she became so excited about writing after receiving the curriculum two years ago that she zipped through it in three months without any mention of doing writing from me. She has since written multiple novels and is constantly on the prowl for ideas for her novels. There is also an online forum where the kids in the program can have their work peer reviewed. Once on the forum, there are also regular webinars (for free) covering various writing related topics and an incre...(more)

My son has rarely been what you would call an enthusiastic writer (although he can write well when he puts forth effort). However, he is very excited about writing his own novel and loves using the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum! My daughter can't wait to use it herself and is hoping to try out their new middle school curriculum next year.

My sons and I love to write and have already used a few lessons from this fantastic program. Beyond the creativity of writing, there is also the 'science' behind novel writing - the structure, plot development, creating real-to-life characters - this can be difficult to teach, but OYAN tackles this with ease. The lessons are easy to use and understand, there is a video and workbook to make learning easy. My kids look forward to each lesson and enjoy using their new information developing our novels. In addition to this program, OYAN offers ...(more)

This is the most creative and unique writing curriculum I have seen in my 15 years of homeschooling. Using the One Year Adventure Novel, my kids were able to get their ideas out of their heads and onto paper--something that was always a challenge for them. Love the program! Highly recommend it, even wrote a review about it on my homeschooling blog arkansashomeschoolers.com

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)

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)

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 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!

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!
