Creative Response Assignment
CREATIVE RESPONSE ASSIGNMENT
For this assignment, you will try out your skills in writing flash-fiction (a very short short story). Please choose ONE of the three creative themes listed below and develop it as a max. 500-word short story.
– Your story MUST be complete with a well-defined plot (a specific set of events with a beginning, a middle and an end), setting (the time and location of these events) and character(s).
– Also, your story MUST include all the words listed under the theme titles. For instance, if you choose to write a story about insanity, the words “white,” “dream,” “bread,” “lipstick,” and “knife” should appear somewhere in your story– of course, not necessarily all in a single sentence and not in this specific order.
TIP: It would be really useful to read a few examples of flash-fiction online before you set out to write your own.
Words to be used in the story: WHITE, DREAM, BREAD, LIPSTICK, KNIFE
Words to be used in the story: CLOAK, WALL, WIND, DAWN, SONG
Words to be used in the story: JOY, STOMACH, TRAP, HORSE, SCREAM
Your story MUST be accompanied by a brief paragraph identifying the theme you have chosen and explaining the main idea/emotion/vision you have sought to convey. Submissions without this paragraph will be subject to a 10% penalty.
All late submissions will be subject to 5% penalty per day, including weekends. No submission will be accepted one week after the original deadline.
Will be graded out of 50 for creativity/effort and out of 50 for LANGUAGE (i.e. grammar, spelling, punctuation).
ABSOLUTELY NO PLAGIARIZED MATERIAL.
If you have any questions do NOT hesitate to ask.
I do trust that you are a native speaker of the english language.
