Creative Writing Workshop

In this post, I’ll be sharing the resources used by Miss Pickup at the recent Easter revision session (Monday 12th April).

You can download the resources to use for your revision and to help you practice creative writing in preparation for your language paper 1 exam.

The powerpoint below gives you some example creative writing questions and a helpful list of tips and advice.

Revision Task One:

Download, read and answer the questions on this sheet:

Revision Task Two:

Use the document below to practice writing interesting sentences. You could take one simple, dull sentence and try rewriting it in several ways. Or, try to write different sentences using the different structures given:
