All-Day Workshop: Literary Techniques Masterclass and Fundamentals of Narrative

Literary Techniques Masterclass for Years 7-8

This workshop will cover how techniques create themes and meanings in texts and how to use these in literary analysis and in your own writing. Each category of literary techniques (figurative, rhetorical, and structural) will be covered, with detailed definitions of specific and textual examples and corresponding writing exercises.

Students will revise and consolidate the following areas:

  • The different categories of techniques and their effect on audiences
  • Prominent techniques with examples
  • How to use techniques in your analysis
  • Unseen text analysis

The Fundamentals of Narrative for Years 7-8

This workshop will cover the fundamental elements of storytelling and narratives, such as theme, structure, setting, genre, voice, and sensory description. Students will be given explicit instruction on how to generate and plan their ideas, getting started and where to find inspiration when they feel stuck. This workshop includes modelled and scaffolded writing activities that are designed to encourage free writing and experimentation with words.
