New Approaches to Creative Writing & Genre Writing

An important component of the Junior English syllabus, and one of the more challenging aspects of the Senior High English curriculum concentrates on the students’ ability to respond on a personal and imaginative level to a variety of creative tasks. This course is devised to develop both thinking and writing skills to enable students to express themselves with confidence in their own ideas, and with sufficient depth of feeling as to appeal to a reader’s imagination. This course is therefore designed around a series of linked exercises encouraging the development of both imagination and style.
