(Shakespearean) Fan Fiction
Full term course!
Do you ship Romeo and Tybalt? Ever wondered what MacBeth would be like set in the Star Wars universe? What happens in A Midsummer Nightmare?
We'll explore creative writing through the lens of fan fiction. Looking at some of Shakespeare's most famous scenes, we'll re-write, adapt, and develop the original work into something entirely new.
Assessment will include a piece of creative writing and numerous explorations of short pieces of text that will help inform students' ability to understand the Unfamiliar Text exam. These assessments will be done throughout the term.
