2014-11-05An Inspiring Afternoon With The American Author Lauren Groff (31 October 2014)

Our school was honored to have the famous American writer Lauren Groff with us to share her experience as a writer during a school seminar. When she was new to this profession, she couldn’t believe that completing and publishing a novel could take up to 5 years!

Lauren explained various approaches in planning a novel and suggested to start off by observing a particular community to look for interesting characters in order to build a story around that character based on different attributes. She believes observation and reading are the best ways to obtain such information, and hence to produce content-rich writing. One of her tips on writing a better ending is to design the climax prior to planning and writing.

Lauren Groff was able to sustain students’ interest in this seminar, including those who hate reading or writing. This suggests that writing can be fun if you take the initiative to try and practise.
