This course is designed for students in Years 7 – 12 who have an interest in creative writing. Over ten weeks students will develop their main characters, give their characters a dilemma to solve, and create character and story arcs. They’ll practise writing description and dialogue, and learn to give and receive constructive critique of a piece of writing.
