Surreal Prose

Stage 5

Term 3 (One off)

In person

Have you ever had a nightmare you can't quite explain? In this workshop students explore prose poetry and surrealism as they prepare to write their own short horror narrative based on an alien invasion. They learn strategies for ideating and world building, and are exposed to models of writing that are fluid in form and rich in ideas and language features. Ideal for reluctant writers. Students write a prose poem in the surreal genre that describes the experience of an alien invasion or encounter. They engage in world building and focus on evoking a sense of place and an emotional response to a dream-like or nightmarish event.
