Criteria & Marking:
The Creative Response asks students to respond imaginatively to a theme related to their course reading and to exercise skills in the craft of writing such as the use of narrative voice, plot structure, point of view, metaphor, dialogue, etc.
The Exegesis demonstrates your ability to employ self-criticism as an essential part of the creative process. You will be asked to consider your creative product as if you were the critic of your own work. This assessment aims to develop your confidence as a writer, and your understanding of publishing industry demands.

GUIDELINES FOR EXEGESES
In providing an exegesis, a practitioner gives an account of the thinking behind a creative work, and may also state a rationale for the work. The exegesis is the practitioner’s own critique of the practice and theory that has gone into the work. It can include an analysis of the influences and contexts that have helped shape the work. It can also include an account of the writer’s stance, attitude and message.
Typical ways of writing an exegesis include quoting from, and making an argument based on, primary and secondary source texts related to the writing process, alongside your own considered viewpoint as practitioner.
