Finding your Voice – writing workshop
Often, young adults think their lives are boring and uneventful, so choose to write in a way that replicates older writers/television/popular fiction/the Twilight series. This workshop encourages students to find their true voice by looking at their own experiences, families and feelings; and to use their writing as a tool of discovering more about their own worlds, and not the vicarious world of others. Topics include: Finding stories from Life; Characterisation; Plot; Dialogue; Use of language
