Experimenting with style? Considering the audience? Finding it all a little dry? This workshop gives students a chance to practise these specific English skills while engaging in a fun and interactive experience, drawing from two clashing formats - horror movies and letters of complaint. Students will practise mashing stylistic features, language choices, and genre conventions as they craft humorous pieces full of creative choices.
