Dissertation Film Project/Creative Writing Teacher

The Excellence Centre

  • A creative and multi-dimensional project combining teaching and film. Students were native Arabic speakers who were encouraged to write creatively in English using a combined study of contextual references (e.g. William Blake poems) with introductory courses on the structures of creative writing (similes and metaphors, etc). They produced their own creative writing pieces to present in the final lesson. The project was filmed and the footage and research contributed toward my MA dissertation, submitted 29th August 2017. The link to the final film is available on request.
