The writing course will have various streams: for example, Creative Writing, IELTS Writing, News Writing.

SENTENCES

Without conjunctions, sentences are short and "choppy". Conjunctions allow you to construct complex and compound sentences. Instead of starting each sentence with the subject, alternate the structure by using prepositional phrases, dependent clauses and so on..

1. Make a basic sentence: Football Crazy.
2. Rewrite sentences using a different grammatical format (use Maxim's Transformation Exercise!)

ESSAYS

Every paragraph should have a topic sentence, supporting idea, and a conclusion. The topic sentence is the introduction of a paragraph. In an essay, it should be written in an argumentative style. Examples are a type of evidence.
