Writing with Imagination
Does your child struggle with creative writing at school? Writing with Imagination is a book for school students that provides them with professional tips on writing stories, poems and drama.
Linda wrote Writing with Imagination when she discovered there was no book to show primary and secondary school students time-honoured tricks of the writing trade.
The book is designed for both keen and reluctant writers (Year 8- Year 12, and HSC etc, but, with parental assistance, younger children too). Based on the creative writing tasks typically required by school syllabuses and public examinations, the book is broken down into thirteen entertaining lessons with exercises and examples from film and TV as well as novels, poetry and plays. Easily used by parents.
Topics include writing under pressure, getting ideas out of the blue, and, for advanced students, ideas for assembling a portfolio for public exams. Writing with Imagination was ‘highly recommended’ to schools by the National Nestle Creative Writing Competition for Schools.
Praise for Writing with Imagination
" Linda Aronson's Writing with Imagination is the very book that teachers have been longing for. A well known writer of novels and scripts and teacher of creative writing, Linda's thorough and structured course for the middle and upper years should be in all book rooms as class sets.’
