The Art of Writing

I hate writing, I love having written. ― Dorothy Parker

Our Year 7 Excellence Group have been working with Mrs Orrock, SGCS Librarian, to explore the writing process.

The students were each given a personal notebook to carry with them, in order to record words, phrases, and ideas that captured their attention.

This week, during their time together in the Pop-Up Library, they shared their “literary finds” and discussed the question ‘What does a good writer do?’. After some wise words about the writing process from author Kate DiCamillo, the students commenced work on writing descriptions of a chosen curious object found in the Pop-Up Library.
