This blog showcases the work of NorthTec creative writing students undertaking the Online Writing paper in 2020
The Online Writing paper is part of the Level 6 NorthTec Creative Writing Diploma.
In 2019 semester 1, students brainstormed a theme for their class blog and settled on Relationships. They decided relationships could take any form: between lovers, friends or families, or with pets or the environment. They also decided their posts could be fiction or non-fiction. All decided to write about human relationships and most are fiction.
In 2019 semester 2 , students worked with NorthTec’s Environmental Management team to write posts pertaining to environmental issues in Whangarei. Since rat-trapping is a hot topic at the moment, both posts are related to that.
