Creative Writing

The YourDNA Creative Arts creative writing program provides the students with the opportunity to express themselves creatively in the written form.  During the first part of the year students will explore a variety of different writing styles by completing units such as Poetry, Comics, Grammar and Punctuation, Children’s books and Short Stories. As their main project for the year students will spend a whole term developing storylines and characters, writing, editing and illustrating their own books for publishing in a writing style of their choice.

Throughout the year the Creative Writing team will also be responsible for designing, writing articles and editing the YourDNA Creative Arts newsletter, Thoughts.  This introduces the students to research skills, the interviewing process and continuous editing and proofreading skills.  In the final term the students put together the YourDNA Creative Arts Yearbook, which is sent out to family and friends.
