This week we will be undertaking an examination of good writing. As we explored last week, writers write on a wide range of topics, and this week, I will post some examples of good writing here for you to engage with as we make our way on our journey as writers. From these, we built our criteria for good narrative writing and used that criteria to begin revising our writing from last week. I hope that somewhere here you find some pieces that you enjoy and learn from, as well as find some ways to improve your own writing. Have fun!
