Creative Writing Students Visit Southampton Solent University

English & Media

On Thursday 6 April, our Creative Writing A Level students visited Southampton Solent University, where they were treated to an excellent screenwriting and story-building workshop by one of the senior lecturers.

Our students built their own stories from the ground up and got a good idea of how visual story-telling works. They were taught about narrative structure in great detail, and the twists and turns that make up an engaging and exciting plot. Afterwards, there was a tour of the brand new Spark building, which has several interesting exhibitions, recording studios, top of the range lecture theatres and high-end equipment throughout. Students loved the workshop, and were very impressed with the facilities on offer.  

Thank you to Southampton Solent University for hosting us and we look forward to attending more sessions like this in the future.
