You will compose a 500-word discursive text opening, in response to the following
stimulus:
“You know the myth: Everybody had to fit into Procrustes’ bed and if they didn’t, he either
stretched them or cut off their feet. I’m not interested in cutting the feet off my characters or
stretching them to make them fit my certain point of view.”
Margaret Atwood (Interview with Mother Jones)
Use this quote as a stimulus for a piece of discursive writing.
You are NOT to complete a close analysis of this quote. Rather, you should use it as a
springboard to discuss your own ideas. Ensure that your response emulates the style,
structure and features of Geraldine Brooks’ ‘A Home in Fiction’.
Reflection: In addition to this, you will compose a 300-word reflection that briefly discusses TWO
key features of discursive writing that you employed in your opening, and their role and impact in
your work.
In order to achieve your purpose, it is expected that your writing:
● will respond to the supplied stimulus with sophistication and insight, providing the opening
for an imagined longer discursive text
● will use engaging discussion of an idea as a springboard for a discursive piece that also
meaningfully incorporates idea/s from the stimulus statement
● will draw fluently on the exemplar peice of writing, Geraldine Brooks’ ‘A Home in Fiction’
● will showcase a strong understanding of the possibilities and technical qualities of the
discursive form
● will have a strong and distinctive voice
● be able to reflect critically on the way that you have employed techniques of discursive
writing, linking Brooks’ work with your own.
———————————————————————————————————————-
These were the instructions given for the task, in summary its a 500 word discursive text opening, with a 300 word reflection. so in total 800 words. You can go 10% over or under both word counts. The quote from Margaret Atwood basically means that (she thinks) writers shouldnt force thier own peronal politcal views or bias’s onto their characters.
IMPORTANT NOTE : The most important part of the “Ensure that your response emulates the style,
structure and features of Geraldine Brooks’ ‘A Home in Fiction’.” part, is to add in your own personal anecdote. You can make this up if you wish. I recommend you read “A home in Fiction” to effectievly emulate the style.
