This module allows students to develop and improve writing techniques in French and to build self-critical awareness on the writing process. The development of reading and writing skills will be supported by the study of various types of texts (which may include short stories, poetry, autobiography and fiction). Teaching and learning will be workshop-based, with the use of textual and visual stimuli to trigger imagination and inspiration. Students will be expected to share extracts from their work in progress and to engage with their own, and other students', written productions, to re-work and improve pieces.
