The Object of Writing
During The Object of Writing project, students explored different forms of writing and heard from published writers to learn how to spark stories and find their writing voice.
There are lots of different forms of creative writing, and finding the one that suits you is the first step in developing your voice as a writer. In The Object of Writing, we look at poetry, flash fiction and novels. Three published writers introduce their work and their form. The students then learnt how to use everyday objects as story starters before choosing their form and writing and editing their own pieces of creative writing.
The students were asked to choose one form of writing to focus on poetry, flash fiction or an opening chapter. Then use everyday objects to spark stories and to build a collection of creative writing ideas. The final stage was all about editing and making their work the best it could be, editing their writing down to a collection of finished pieces.
