Workshop: Creative Writing

Workshop content

1) The importance of English

Nick Brewer (or another artist) on how becoming a signed rapper started with his love for English at school:

  • The power of storytelling
  • The use of language tools (metaphor, simile, personification)

2) How English is utilised in rap music

The students listen to and look at examples of popular rap songs, and the way different language tools are used to powerful effect in the lyrics. This will help the students to see how vital it is to have a solid grasp of the English language.

3) Different examples of creative English

The students look at how creative English can be used to produce different written form:

  • Poetry
  • Spoken word
  • Rap

4) Creative writing

Overseen by Nick (or another artist), the students write their own creative piece, on a subject of their choice, to send a positive message

5) Performance

Students who would like to have a chance to share what they have written with the group.
