‘The choice of topic areas is very strong. Guides students through all of the key stages of fiction creation. I liked the general organizational mode, moving from initial inspiration to makeover.’ – J Clarke, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘A useful set of tasks which you could literally copy and distribute. Good to inform teaching, and to prompt students to write in an area where they generally feel quite uncomfortable. Directs towards achieving the elements of the mark scheme which are often overlooked. I really liked the three sections in the process; writing a story which develops the more basic skills; then moving on to review the writing and edit and develop it further, and then to add more to the story to enhance the skills. This lends itself to differentiation. The advice on writing an effective piece of creative writing is very good and provides a stage by stage build up of techniques in the first batch of cards. It encourages pupils to review their writing and enables them to see how to use the elements of creative writing which receive marks. I like the references to spicing up syntax and being more ambitious with vocabulary, as for students who struggle with spelling, this can be a lifeline to a large number of marks.’ – K Chanter, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

“These are genius. Simple, effective, focusing on different aspects of a short story – they would provide pupils with a host of places to start! Broken up into Inspirations, Makeover Moments and The Extra Mile – the planning, drafting and upgrading sections are all covered.” – S Owen, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
