The Writer’s Club Term 3, 2017Based at Oakleigh Primary School, our program for term 3 includes six workshops designed to have young writers exploring a range of genres and writing skills. Elizabeth Honey’s ‘The Book of Little Books’ is the inspiration behind this term’s writing adventures. Who knew that little books come packed with so many big writing ideas? Each week, a miniature book becomes the key to exploring a different genre. We’ll explore a range of genres from script writing, poetry, personal narrative, mystery and works of fiction. Different genres allow us to develop and extend our writing style. Script writing, for example, generates vivid mental imagery as we need to ‘see’ and ‘hear’ the scene to write it. Poetry allows us to recognise patterns and rhythms in words and phrases. Personal narrative reminds us that our own lives provide rich material for writing. Although the writing genres will vary from week to week, one thing is for sure: this term we’ll push our creativity to the limit! Can we finish six pieces of writing in six weeks? The challenge lies before us.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.Ray Bradbury
