This unit is designed for students interested in reading and writing narratives for teenage readers. Students will select a genre in which to write a creative fiction, for example fantasy, gritty realism, romance, adventure. They will intellectually frame their creative process by reading and interrogating a selection of published books in their chosen genre. This analysis of published texts will underpin their exegesis and hone their ability to critically assess the issues and agendas in their own work.


Creative fiction 3000 words 50%

Critical exegesis 2000 words 50%
