Homework: Riffing on Style

by Sep 9, 2015Creative Writing, Homework, Writing0 comments

We have been experimenting with the process of modifying the style of what started as a very simple seven sentence narrative.

Your task now is to write two paragraphs that communicate this narrative, each of which conform to the features that you understand represent a known style (this will mean that you will have two paragraphs, each a different style). To follow is a list of possible stylistic options you may wish to employ (some we have studied, some you would have to apply from personal experience):

 

  • Noir
  • Dystopian
  • Epistolary (letter)
  • Documentary
  • Romantic
  • Bureaucratic
  • Satirical

This work is due Thursday 10 September.
