Weekly Write 7

“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.”
― Jodi Picoult

Weekly Write Overview

Every week we have a short writing assignment:

  • Your submission should be about 120 words long, or half a page double-spaced.
  • Please be honest in your writing – I am not paid to mark google translate – I prefer that you write without too much aid from translation devices. You are not marked for grammar so long as you take my feedback seriously (which may include grammar advice).
  • The format doesn’t matter (Word document, photo of your writing, e-mail etc.), and it can be submitted on Canvas or through email (matthew.little@mpsd.ca).
  • I will provide feedback and/or proofreading for each of your submissions.
  • The next weekly write will be posted Wednesday.
