Follow a Year 9’s writing journey from inspiration to creation Laura is a Year 9 pupil who is passionate about writing. She lets us into her world as we follow her developing a piece of extended creative writing over a period of a week. She explains her thought processes, from early plot, setting and general planning through various drafts to completion, narrating her writing journey as well as her story throughout. This gives viewers a fascinating insight into the processes of writing as experienced by a pupil, both in class and at home.
The programme is accompanied, on the website, by some useful insights into Laura’s work by writing expert Denise Margetts.
[Note: the text of Laura’s story is given in early drafts. Laura later proof read and corrected her text with her teacher’s help]
