Our first class introduces the concept of creating an original character and the use of dialogue. We will design our own comic book character or superhero to put what we learn into practice.
Week two introduces plot. We look at some well-known stories and ask ourselves what happens and why it is interesting. Students are given the raw materials for a basic plot and must make up their own tale.
This week we discover styles of narration and different points-of-view. For a writing exercise, students will write three pieces of text from different points of view.
For our fourth class we discuss the concept of setting. Students will write a short scene of a play using some writing prompts for inspiration.
Our class this week explores shorter forms of writing. We look at short story and flash fiction techniques. For the writing exercise this week, students will write a short story or piece of flash fiction using only one character.
Our final class introduces forms of non-fiction writing, focusing particularly on blogging. For their last writing assignment, students will create their own blog based on one of their favourite hobbies.
