Writing Course Term 2: A Gothic Story

Students now put their writing skills in to practice by writing a gothic horror story. By drawing on ideas from our reading in Dracula from the reading course, students will be supported to develop and write their own story. They will need to plan their plot carefully, create characters, and manage their time effectively to complete the story. They’ll be supported along the way, of course, but there’s lots of freedom here to follow their imagination!

Tutorials will focus on students writing their stories and receiving live feedback from the tutor to help them progress and feel confident with their writing. Students may wish to write more outside of tutorials.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
