Description

Presented by English teacher Maruti Lyons (Tempe High School) and Gregory Connop (Tempe High School graduate), this HSC lecture will cover the expectations that markers have of ‘A range’ creative writing, and focus on practical tips for achieving writing of that quality. Suitable for senior students in Year 11 and 12, there will be a focus on insights into the form, structure, techniques, types of story ideas, creation of an authorial voice, sentence and paragraph variation, tips for characterisation, the need for authenticity, crafting dialogue and other key elements that will improve imaginative writing.

Maruti Lyons is an experienced English teacher and HSC marker who has received a National Excellence in Teaching Award, and District Superintendent’s Education Week award for his commitment to quality teaching. Gregory Connop graduated from Tempe High School in 2015 with an HSC mark of 95 in Advanced English and an ATAR of 97.00. He is currently an English tutor and marker at The Brain Education and studies at UNSW’s School of Mathematics and Statistics.
