In the last class session we wrote about a place/landscape that was very special to us. Angela has asked that we write about the same place but this time as a paragraph for a travel brochure. This needs to be an objective travel piece without you in it.
If you were not at the last session write a brief description of a place that is special for you and follow that with the homework above. Our next session is on Thursday 18th April.
The homework for the next session on Thursday 28th March is to write a little slice of a play. No more than 300 words and don’t give any stage directions. The theme is that of meeting an old friend. Angela suggested that ‘Brief Encounter’ was an excellent exemplar.
An additional piece of work for those at the last meeting is to carry on with the work done in class where we put a character in a particular landscape.
The homework for the next meeting on Thursday 14th March is firstly, to write half a page of prose which contains conversation or to write a poem which is a conversation. Secondly, extend your writing done in the session on Thursday 28th February, about time.
Write the first page (300 words) of a love story in which there’s been some thought about how one might define romantic love, and through which themes like anticipation and tension are quickly introduced and might be felt by the reader
