Interested in postgraduate study?

At the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, our friendly and knowledgeable team will be available to provide you with all the information you need to kick-start your postgraduate journey at the University of Strathclyde. Register for upcoming events below:

Part-time structure

First Year: 1 Semester 1 class plus 2 Semester 2 classes

Second Year: 2 Semester 1 classes plus 1 Semester 2 class + The Major Project in Semester 3

Or

First Year: 2 Semester 1 classes plus 1 Semester 2 class

Second Year: 1 Semester 1 class plus 2 Semester 2 classes + The Major Project in Semester 3

Each 20 credit module (all but the 60-credit Major Project at the end of the course, Semester 3, second year of the part-time route) is 200 hours of study, 20 of which are class time. The rest of the time is reading, research, and writing assignments. All classes are currently scheduled for weekdays, between 9am and 5pm, though in each Semester classes almost exclusively take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Optional modules may take place at other times.

Course content

Semester 1 contains three modules of equal weight. All three are scheduled on the same day of the week. This Semester has a heavy emphasis on teaching core principles, providing students with opportunities to develop essential writing skills. We also encourage students to explore potential exciting directions for developing their work over the year to come.

Core classes

The Shape of Stories 1 (20 credits)

The Shape of Stories 1 works with the bones of good stories across genre and form, resembling a seminar in format. This class introduces students to classic and contemporary writers and writing approaches that will be useful in future work. It also includes workshop time for students to share work with their peers and benefit from editorial feedback from tutors who are also published writers. We are mindful from day one that you are working towards the Major Project of your final Semester. The first semester is the time for planning and experimentation that will later be useful when tackling that Major Project.

The Writing Life (20 credits)

The Writing Life is all about the contemporary literary landscape. It introduces students to the practicalities of a life in the creative industries – how writers make a living, and how that living is changing in the 21st Century. Through a series of talks and seminars from visiting speakers from across the writing worlds, students will have direct access to those who have been there and done it. In assignments, students will choose a target, for example, a publisher, a journal, an online magazine – then write a new piece of creative work to submit to that target, as well as an essay profiling the target they have chosen. This ensures students increase their knowledge of the publishing industry they wish to enter while also having a practical challenge, writing to a brief they have chosen themselves.

Research Skills in the Humanities (20 credits)

Finally, Semester 1 also includes a Research Skills class which prepares students for how to work critically at an advanced level in the humanities, both in academia and the professional creative industries, providing an introduction to a crucial range of interdisciplinary research methods.

These three introductory modules – one creative workshop, one industry-facing seminar series and one interdisciplinary research skills class – give our students the grounding they need to prosper. It also prepares them for what comes next.

In Semester 2, the MLitt starts encouraging students to engaging in more towards independent work. The modules become more student-led, with both core modules providing greater freedom in contrasting ways. There is also the freedom for students to choose an optional module alongside their core modules, as detailed here.

Core classes

The Shape of Stories 2 (20 credits)

The Shape of Stories 2 is a partner to The Shape of Stories 1, the Semester 1 workshop focused on the bones of good stories across genre and form. This module takes that a step further, exploring hybrid writing across fiction, script, screenwriting, poetry and creative non-fiction, closely studying innovative contemporary works that blur the boundaries between different kinds of writing. Students will broaden their reading and experience, and will be encouraged to experiment with hybrid forms in their own creative work. From short stories containing to poetry, from ekphrastic responses to art and photographs to autobiographical, illustrated vignettes, The Shape of Stories 2 is an opportunity to explore new possibilities, in exciting ways.

The Made Project (20 credits)

The Made Project consists of two assignments. The first is a short oral piece of creative work, which requires students to write to a time-limited brief then present that work to the group as a reading. The second is a more substantial creative piece chosen and developed in discussion with a course tutor over a number of weeks. Whether students intend to produce an adaptation of a piece of underlying material; or a response to an artwork in another form; or produce a work made in collaboration with another artist; or create and produce a podcast; or prepare and perform a piece for performance; students will—independently and in consultation with their nominated tutor—produce a piece of work with practical ‘made’ element. Students will be encouraged to produce work that adds diversity to their writing portfolio.

Optional class

Choose one of the following:

Advanced Topics in Creative Writing (Supervisions)

Advanced Topics in Creative Writing seeks to build upon research and writing skills developed in Semester 1 while providing significant freedom for students to pursue any genre, form or approach to creative work that excites them. It enables students to work with a staff member on a mutually agreed topic within the broad field of Creative Writing, in fiction, poetry, script, non-fiction or hybrid forms.

The student will be assigned a supervisor, after discussion with the convener, for the Advanced Topics module based on areas of interest, and will meet with that supervisor at least 5 times over Semester 2. The supervisor will identify a short initial reading list within a broad topic area and will meet with the student to discuss their reading of this literature and to assist in their development of a comprehensive reading list on a more tightly defined topic or debate identified by the student.

Future meetings will be focused around key texts and questions identified by the student. The assignments consist of one major piece of creative work in any form or genre, influenced by the student’s reading list, and a shorter critical review of the initial reading list provided.

OR A module from a selection offered from across the School of Humanities

Students who prefer not to take Advanced Topics in Creative Writing will be able to choose from a series of elective modules in the School of Humanities, based on availability and demand in any given academic session. Some of these may offer the opportunity to do creative assignments.

Below are examples of optional modules that our MLitt students have produced creative assignments for:

Narrative Processing across Languages, Culture and Media

Narrative processing is a field which has seen significant advances in recent years in psychology and neuroscience and narratology. These bodies of research converge on the many ways in which narratives across cultures and media can be seen to share universal features. However, there is an even older body of work, deriving ultimately from memory studies and developing through folklore and anthropology, which illustrates how narratives meaning and interpretation changes as it moves between social settings as well as media and cultures. This class invites students to engage with these three approaches, to form views on their implications for the use of narratives between cultural groups, and to consider potential practical applications for their findings.

Contemporary Scottish Cultural Studies

This class allows students to engage with materials from Scottish, cultural, historical and literary studies. Students will read a range of primary literary and cultural materials in a historical and theoretical context, and will develop skills in textual analysis and critical engagement. In doing so, the class will provide students with a knowledge of some of the main developments in Scottish literary and cultural studies throughout the 20th Century. Students will gain an understanding of the relationships between literature, culture and theories of nationalism, also developing an awareness of a range of major issues in contemporary Scottish culture.

Transcultural Fandom & British Popular Culture: Reading & Writing in Online Communities

This Masters option explores online fanfiction and fan communities and investigates how they work with and transform key popular texts and genres from British literary history. We will study reading and writing practices and consider questions of adaptation across cultures, in relation to texts and themes which may have a global presence across different forms of media. Fan studies is a growing area within media/cultural studies, and fanfiction studies is rapidly developing as a new field of exploration for literary scholars. We will read cutting-edge, as well as. canonical critical works in fan studies, and consider through this class how this field is developing and what new directions are emerging for research and scholarship. Students on this class are welcome to choose their own topics to explore, outwith the texts specifically covered in our classes.

This class is suitable for anyone interested in learning more about transformative works and fan cultures: no prior knowledge of fanfiction or experience with fan culture is necessary. For students with a background in English studies and Creative Writing, it features questions about literary genre and form, about online writing communities and their readers, and about the global re-interpretation of British culture and literature. For students primarily focused on ‘TESOL and Intercultural Communication’, it offers opportunities to consider how fan communities enable language learners and use particular kinds of intercultural communication through shared knowledge of and admiration for a ‘canonical’ work. For students with a background in gender studies, fanfiction and fan cultures supply an extraordinarily rich source for investigating how gender is depicted, discussed and debated by a very large cohort of predominately female-identifying or LGBTQ+ fans.

Fleshy Histories: Meat Eating & Meat Avoidance, 1500 to the Present

This class will engage students with literary and historical materials, and with theoretical work from animal studies and ecofeminism. This will inform discussions about the place, meaning and function of meat eating and meat avoidance, and debates about human-animal relations, from the early modern to the modern world.

As well as philosophical and religious work you’ll read a range of primary materials, including literary works from A String of Pearls (aka Sweeney Todd) to Roald Dahl’s Pig; from Swift’s Modest Proposal to Coetzee’s Lives of Animals, via Dracula, and develop skills in textual analysis and critical and theoretical engagement.

Semester 3 starts after the Easter break in each academic year, and runs until students submit their final piece of work in mid-August. Whereas Semesters 1 and 2 are built around classes, seminars and group work, Semester 3 is all about one-on-one supervision and independent writing.

The Major Project (60 Credits)

The only module in Semester 3 is the triple module we call The Major Project. This is an extended piece of creative work in students’ chosen field, that they will develop with a supervisor who will get to know them and their work closely.

The process starts with students sending an outline of their planned project for discussion with staff, before a supervisor is assigned to work with students regularly over the summer. This is the time for more focussed work on the page, and closer editing.

Using the skills acquired in Semesters 1 and 2, students will now be fully independent researchers, ready to pursue their signature work which is intended to be a potential submission to an agent or publisher. Whatever form it takes, when students leave us, their work will be ready to present to the world at large. Novelists will make serious headway into their manuscript; poets and essayists and short story writers will amass the beginnings of a collection; screenwriters will have a full draft of a feature film or series pilot.

Assessment

You’ll submit creative work for formal assessment in each of the core workshops. This will take the form of short fiction, poetry or playwriting, depending on the student’s chosen area of specialisation.

The creative writing skills project will involve students selecting a topic covered during the skills workshop and developing a project in discussion with tutors on a one-to-one basis. The form of assessment for this component will be dictated by the nature of the skills project.

The final dissertation will take the form of an extended piece of creative writing (fiction, poetry or playwriting) and build on work developed in one of the two creative writing workshops. It will be developed in discussion with tutors on a one-to-one basis.

TOP-5 Advantages of PayforEssay

When you pay for paper, it is only reasonable to expect a good level of service in return. Amid hundreds of companies failing to deliver as promised, Pay for Essay stands out by offering solid guarantees that work.

Let’s break down key advantages that make our company your go-to choice, always.

Excellent Quality

Everything and everyone has a flaw except for our essays.

If you think it is impossible, wait till our writer does your text from scratch. Our experts don’t work alone; they also rely on the help of professional editors and proofreaders. A special quality department checks every order for overall quality, compliance with instructions, formatting guidelines, and other features impacting the final grade.

With Pay for Essay, you are down for the best quality no matter what.

100% Content Originality

“What if I pay someone to write my paper, but it will be plagiarized?”

This is a major concern for students. No wonder; plagiarism is a serious issue that leads to severe consequences. Learners don’t want to risk their academic careers by submitting somebody else’s work. Moreover, pay for it.

That is why we check all texts for originality before uploading them to customer profiles. Our writers do researches from scratch and never copy other works. However, no one is safe from unintentional plagiarism. Writers may have similar styles or ground their analysis on similar data sources, arriving at the same conclusions. To exclude any risks, we run advanced plagiarism screenings with the help of Copyscape and Copyleaks.

Timely Delivery, from 1 Hour

“Will you write my essay for me in a few hours?” Sure, we are the masters of speedy writing.

Rumor has it that our writers can type essays with their eyes closed. They are so good in their respective discipline that it takes them minutes to draft a writing plan and find relevant knowledge sources for quick yet efficient research. Tried and tested wordsmiths, they deliver original essays in just one hour.

You can see the list of deadline options on the order form. Timely delivery is a must, with 40% of all orders arriving even before the deadline. How cool is that? Pay now and see for yourself.

Free Revisions or a Refund

When you pay for essays, you always face risks. What if the quality is bad? What if the initial instructions aren’t met? What if… you don’t like it?

For these and other case scenarios, Pay for Essay offers a customer-friendly Revision & Refund policy. Let’s say your essay misses certain information. Contact us immediately explaining the issue, and the writer will fix the text right away. Revisions apply if your order requires corrections and are available within the first two weeks since the order delivery.

Let’s say your essay doesn’t meet the provided brief or has plagiarism. You can skip revisions and go for a full refund without hesitation. We do not tolerate bad jobs and value our reputation. Even though such a situation is highly unlikely to happen, your customer rights are always protected by a refund guarantee.

24/7/365 Free Online Support

Ongoing support is yet another guarantee that is rude to neglect. Managers work non-stop to answer your questions and address problems timely. Available via live chats and toll-free lines, you can reach them anytime.

Send your “write my paper for me” request and test our support system first-hand. We reply within minutes so that it won’t take long.

Security Concerns Are Out of the Picture

It doesn’t matter how well a paper is written if it puts your data at risk. Nothing’s worth exposing your sensitive information to third parties or going through a dangerous payment transaction. That is why we take security seriously, making it our first and foremost priority.

Data Encryption

We provide clients with safe and fast payment options, so there are no risks and bothers. The transaction takes seconds and is applicable for credit and debit cards. All payments are protected by globally recognized security standards, such as PCI DSS.

Privacy Policy

Your data is safe from any virtual leaks, but what about leaks inside the company? Impossible as well.

The thing is that you share as little information about yourself with us as possible. Only order details and your email are required to make things work. Your name, educational establishment, and other facts remain incognito. You are welcome to add your phone number to get free SMS updates, but this is not mandatory.

Read more about our Privacy policy at the bottom of the page, pay for essay writing, and stay confidential.

Money-Back Guarantee

When you pay someone to write your essay, things may not go as planned and result in unexpected consequences. But your customer rights are safely protected by a Refund guarantee.

If you believe the quality of your paper is below the standard or it has plagiarism, feel free to ask for a reimbursement. This is the least we can do to fix your dissatisfaction with the service. But we are 99.9% sure you won’t need to put this guarantee to work.

Cheaper Options for a Shoestring Budget

Students often wonder, “can you write my essay cheap?”

The answer is positive. But it will require an extra effort on your behalf. See the most popular budget-saving options below.

I would use “have you done.” This is the present perfect and relates to a past and a present situation.

“Did you do” is also possible but the meaning relates more to a finished action. I understand this use is more common in US English.
You should read up on the uses of present perfect and past simple for a more complete answer.

mameytree
Senior Member

Es interesante lo que ha dicho PichaPuerto – a lo mejor “did you do” no se usa tanto en otros países anglohablantes. “Did you do” vs. “have you done” es la misma diferencia entre “Hiciste/usted hizo” vs. “Has/ha hecho.” La respuesta no cambiaría.

jeni_la_gringa
Senior Member

The only grammatical difference, as mameytree notes, is that “did you do” is in the preterite form (hiciste), and “have you done” is in the present perfect (has hecho).

As for usage, I use them both and they are almost identical. The present perfect is always “a little closer to the present” than the simple past (preterite) tense; hence I would say “have you done your homework?” if the person was recently doing their homework, and “did you do your homework?” if it happened slightly earlier in the day. Really, though, there is no difference.

The 7 Best Dissertation Writing Services in the U.S.

SEATTLE, March 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dissertation writing services are becoming more and more popular amidst the rise of online learning. A recent study conducted by Stressays revealed that the popularity of such services increased by 20% in 2021, compared to the same period of time in 2020.

The most common reasons why Ph.D. students seek dissertation writing help were: lack of assistance from dissertation supervisor, coping with dissertation stress, and poor motivation.

Due to the rising demand, more and more companies continue to emerge. Stressays scoured the internet, collected more than 500 student reviews, and ranked seven of the most popular Ph.D. dissertation writing services in 2021.

The exceptional quality of service has resonated with users over the years evidenced by the positive reviews of satisfied customers.

There’s no disputing how important these companies are to both graduate and undergraduate students and professionals who sometimes require extra assistance to keep up with tight schedules. These companies usually offer a wide range of services, including academic papers that cut across a vast number of fields, and business writing as well.

Generally, choosing price over quality can easily backfire, and you would end up wasting both your time and money. In that regard, always choose the platform with a money-back guarantee and a strict satisfaction policy, which will act as a hedge against the poor quality of work. But importantly, scout through the websites to see which one resonates best with you.

Similarities of technical writing and creative writing venn diagram

Technical Writing vs. Creative Writing

Since the world came into being, the invention of writing is termed as one of the biggest revolution as it eased the way to communicate people with each other and most importantly it also played pivotal role in cultural transmit from one generation to another. Now the thousands of years have passed, and writing has become a way complex than it was before as it can be sub divided in many genres and types and everyone of it occupies its own specific audience.

Technical writing and creative writing are two types of writing, which can be distinguished easily by looking at their traits. The main difference between both of them is that, creative writing is written to enthrall, entertain and arouse a certain felling in a reader, whereas technical writing is to educate the audience with the factual information and is presented in a logical manner.

What is Technical Writing?

Writing is nowadays one of the vast field as it is not just restricted to writing on papers or magazines. It further possess many types, which generate hefty revenues, beside the fact that common people are just aware of two types of writings, fiction writing and nonfiction writing.

Technical writing’s main purpose is to educate people in a logical way that might cause boredom for the audience. As in technical writing, the facts are being displayed and most often the examples placed in it are also rigid that can be felt by the one who reads the whole context and can deal with the logic inside.

At the end of the day, we can say that one doing technical writing should have got his/her formal education properly. It is mostly about the field experts of different, who tried to prove their point by quantitative-qualitative experiment, by applying some formulas or in any other way. While doing this, the writer might also made some figures or give examples but these examples are strictly limited to the point being explain as one doesn’t presents example of scenarios intending to captivate you.

What is Creative Writing?

It is something far beyond the boundary, with aiming to entertain the viewers and to make them imagine of what the writers are willing to provoke. Here it should also be kept mentioned that all of the creative writings are to entertain but some along with it also holds some strong message, or it won’t be wrong to say that these writings are done to prove that point. But in this the typical formula or facts are not applied, they excite you by making you believe in the story in real. Finally, we can say they entertain and educate together but are written informally, might be imaginary to excite the audience.

One writing creative writing always get it clear in his/her mind that what he is going to write should be accepted by most of the people as generally speaking these writings are for everyone with sound mind which can feel the realness even in some self-made characters. In this it won’t affect that if the writer is not that much expert in something as it can be done by person from any group age, who gets his idea in a proper sequence and plays with the nerve of a reader.

Technical and Literary Writing: What’s the difference?

Writing is a form of communication that utilizes language to deliver an intended message to particular readers within a context. As a form of communication both technical and literary writing consist of source, content, channel, audience and context. They differ in their characteristics and indicators of those elements in practice or operation.

Technical writers are different from poets or authors of literary works in terms of their interest, purpose and style of writing. They both have writing expertise to be appreciated by their readers, but they are limited in their style as dictated by the nature of the material they create. Technical writers also need some creativity to go with their logic and knowledge expertise about technical subjects.

Technical writing in the surface is non-fiction writing. But not all non-fiction manuscripts are considered technical documents. Literature has in its genres both fiction and non-fiction. Unlike the wide circulation of literary fiction that caters to general readers, technical writing targets specific audience. The readers of technical writing are those mostly interested on technical subjects. They include experts, professionals, field practitioners and the academics.

Technical writers generally aim to inform or persuade their readers to do some action upon reading the technical document. On the other hand, literary writers inspire and entertain with some commitment to inform or stimulate the readers’ emotions. To illustrate, an essay on climate change may stimulate and stir the audience to do some action for the environment, yet it is still literary. A technical report on climate change will have more details to inform the reader about the problem’s causes, implications and specific mitigation schemes. The same topic on climate change can be presented freely in the various genres of literary writing.

The difference between technical and literary writing lies heavily on its use of language and style of presenting information as required for specific formats. While literary writing can be informal and personal, technical writing is strict to being formal and impersonal in tone and voice. Literary writing would be prosaic or verbose, but technical writing will use the language in a straightforward manner and present the ideas with conciseness or brevity.

Literary writing is humanistic that it allows for creative expression or aesthetics. Technical writing is conventional and adheres to formats and standards in presenting empirical information. Humanism rules literary writing, while technical writing is held by the logic and determinism of scientific writing which is richly engrained in the philosophy of empiricism. Humanism is liberal which looks at life as a subject for literary writing. Empiricism is rigidly objective that it looks at things in life as objects for technical writing.

Another distinctive trait of technical writing from literary writing aside from its purpose, format, language and style, is the choice of subject. Some experts reduce the definition of technical writing to writing about technical subjects. They also think that those technical subjects are limited to science and technology. Since most technical documents that circulate are about technical topics, the idea that technical writing is about science and technology came into surface. In practice, technical writing can be about anything and everything, but it is treated and presented in a technical manner.

Technical writing can be lucrative career, especially in this era where knowledge online is highly valued as a resource. In business and in the academe technical writing is highly valued not for mere appreciation or critiquing because it allows for the continuous transmission of essential information needed in organizational decision-making processes. Literary writing is also a career and can be lucrative as well, and it is also valuable to enrich our life and culture. However, the value of technical writing manifest in many practical and functional ways, that it is indeed necessary to our daily lives.

Historically, technical writing is much younger than the literary writing which has been in the world ever since men learned to use language as symbols for meaning making. The need for technical writing has evolved in the introduction of more modern technologies from the progress that science and engineering made. Because people need to be informed and instructed in the use and manufacture of the tools that man invents, technical writing provides the means to transmit and distribute those vital knowledge. Nowadays, online technology is evidently used in delivering those technical information.

Creative Writing vs. Technical Writing

What is the difference between creative writing and technical writing?

Today, after learning what creative writing is and how to get started in it, we’re going to compare the two of them.

There are writers all over the world in the two categories – and it boggles the mind to hear that millions have been made from both creative writing and technical writing. Some have made fortunes. While some have not made anything.

Enjoyment can be gained from both types, but it’s fair to say that they both serve different purposes. They both have their own do’s and don’ts and they both have their own rules. Both are governed by grammar and style. Both appear everywhere. So what’s the difference?

Here’s my take: creative writing is written for the right brain (creative) and technical writing is written for the left brain (logical). Confused yet? Wait, there’s more…

A Further Look into Creative Writing

Creative writing is written to entertain and educate. We enjoy reading novels and stories, not because they are necessary to read or helpful for us, just because we get a certain pleasure from reading them, the pleasure which can’t be got from reading technical writing.

Creative writing has so many genres and sub-genres that they deserve a whole section of an article for themselves. It sometimes follows a given set of rules, and sometimes throws caution to the winds and breaks all of them. Either way, talent is somewhat of a necessary ingredient if you want to write creatively. Of course, writing can be improved by practice. But if you don’t have the necessary talent, your writing would not give pleasure to anyone.

Skills and talent both make up creative writing. Hence, they are its constituents.

A Further Look into Technical Writing

Technical writing is wholly written to inform and sometimes to trigger the person reading into making an action beneficial to the one of the writer. Whoa, what a mouthful. That’s not a subject I’m going to cover here (copywriting), but if you want to know more about it, you can visit the master of its game, Copyblogger.com.

I already gave the examples of technical writing in the first post of the series. If you look at them with the context of copywriting, they make much more sense. Copywriters are some of the highest paid writers, says Copyblogger. Sales letters, pitches, advertisements, etc constitute copywriting.

Technical writing is not written to entertain. It has its own set of rules, conventions, do’s and don’ts, masterpieces and pieces of rubbish. There is a whole art to mastering technical writing, although it too is branched: online technical writing and offline technical writing. Personally, I think that if you want to master technical writing, you should first master concise and magnetic writing that draws the reader in, regardless of whether it’s creative or technical.

Are you a master or a learner of concise writing? If you are, so am I, and I’m going to cover it here in future posts. Creative leads or hooks contribute to it.

So that’s it for creative writing. The differences between creative writing and technical writing are that creative writing is written mainly to entertain with the creativity of the mind and technical writing is written mainly to inform in a formal manner or to incite the reader to make an action such as purchase the writer’s product.

This, in a mouthful, is the main difference. In the beginning of this article, I made my own claim: right brain vs. Left brain. However, they deserve an article of their own, and not here. If you want to know more, you can always do your own research.

For my part, I’m going to focus on creative writing tips here, mainly because this is a creative writing blog and I’m much more interested by creative writing than by technical writing. Next post will be solely on fiction writing elements. Stay tuned.

This is the third instalment in the 8-part series “Creative Writing 101.”

Cover letter for consent order

Applying for consent orders

If you have reached an agreement with the other party, you can apply for consent orders. Consent orders make your agreement an order of the court without you having to go through the court process. When consent orders are made, your agreement will have the same legal effect as a decision of the Court.

This page is about making an Application for Consent Orders, which is when you are requesting consent orders as the first stage in the court process. If the Court is already dealing with your dispute, you file a minute of consent orders.

Even if you are applying without the help of a lawyer, you should get legal advice about your consent orders. It is important that you understand the meaning and consequences of the orders you are proposing.

To apply for consent orders, you need to file:

  • an Application for Consent Orders (Form 11) which depend on the type of orders you are requesting.

Application for Consent Orders (Form 11)

Before you begin it is important to be aware that there are some orders you cannot seek by using this application. They are:

  • Child maintenance covered by the Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989
  • Declarations about the existence of a de facto relationship
  • Medical procedures
  • Orders under cross-vesting laws
  • A parenting order in favour of a person who is not a parent, grandparent or other relative under section 65G of the Family Law Act 1975 or section 92 of the Family Court Act 1997

Generally, Consent Orders that can be made by a court fall into two categories – parenting orders and financial orders.

  • Application for Consent Orders (Form 11) – word document for completing electronically and printing
  • Application for Consent Orders (Form 11) – .pdf file for printing

Parenting Orders

These include orders relating to:

  • The person with whom the child lives – including any shared arrangements.
  • The times that a child may spend with – that a child may spend with a parent with whom they are not living, or anyone else who plays an important part in their life, such as a grandparent and can be either face-to-face, or by phone, email or letters.
  • Any other aspect of parental responsibility. – this may include the day-to-day care, welfare and development of a child, religion, education and sport.

If you are seeking orders concerning children you should read and consider sections 60B, 60CA, 60CC, 61DA and 65DAA of the Family Law Act 1975 or Part 5 of the Family Court Act 1997 for an ex-nuptial child.

Financial Orders

These include orders relating to:

  • Spouse maintenance – financial support for a husband, wife, former husband/wife or de facto.
  • Property – how your property, superannuation, financial resources and liabilities should be shared between you.

If you are seeking financial orders, you should read and consider sections 75 and 79 of the Family Law Act 1975, or section 205 of the Family Court Act 1997 and section 13A of the Interpretation Act 1984 for de facto relationships.

If you were married and are seeking orders for property settlement or maintenance, and more than 12 months has lapsed since your divorce became final, you should read and consider s44(3) of the Family Law Act 1975. This may apply and if so, you must consent to the Court making the proposed property and maintenance orders.

If you have been in a de facto relationship and you are seeking orders for property settlement or maintenance, and more than 2 years has lapsed since you separated from your de facto partner you should read and consider s205ZB(1) Family Court Act 1997. This may apply and, if so, you must consent to the Court making the proposed property and maintenance orders and provide affidavit evidence about the hardship that will be caused to the Applicant in the event orders are not made.

Superannuation

For married parties. there are special requirements where you are making an application for orders for property settlement and either party has a superannuation interest.

If you are seeking a splitting order in relation to a superannuation interest in accordance with Section 90XT of the Family Law Act 1975:

(a) You must attach to the application a completed Superannuation Information Form or last two member statements in relation to that superannuation interest.
(see Superannuation Information Kit)

(b) You must calculate and agree the value of the superannuation interest and consider the taxation consequences of the order. If the Family Law (Superannuation) Regulations 2001 provide a method for calculating the value then that method must be used. Otherwise you must agree an appropriate method of valuing the interest. The completed Superannuation Information Form will have sufficient information to allow the value to be calculated in accordance with the regulations.

(c) Where a base amount is allocated then that amount cannot exceed the value of the interest (see Section 90XT(4)).

If you are seeking an order that imposes an obligation on the Trustee of the superannuation plan you must satisfy the court that the Trustee has been afforded procedural fairness in relation to the making of the order.

The court requires that at least 28 days before filing the application, you must serve written notice of the following matters on the Trustee of the superannuation plan in which the superannuation interest is held:

(a) the terms of the orders that will be sought from the Court to bind the Trustee;

(b) that the Trustee may object to the orders sought by giving written notice within 28 days of receiving the notice.

De facto parties seeking financial orders

De facto parties seeking financial orders are required to file a separate affidavit.

If there are other orders

If the orders you seek are intended to vary or discharge an existing order which was made in any other Court or Family Court registry, other than the registry in which the Application for Consent Orders is to be filed, then sealed copies of the existing order must also be filed.

Change of name and/or address

If you change address after the application is filed you must eLodge a Notice of Address for Service (Form 8) so the Court can send any papers to the correct address.

If you change your name after the application has been filed, you must eLodge a Notice of Change of Name.

  • Notice of Address for Service (Form 8) – Word .doc
  • Notice of Address for Service (Form 8) – PDF
  • Notice of Change of Name – Word .doc
  • Notice of Change of Name – PDF

Third Parties

A person against whom an order is sought or whose rights may be directly affected by an issue in the case must be included as a party to the application for consent orders. For the persons who must be parties to an application seeking parenting orders see Rule 6.02(2) of the Family Law Rules 2004.

Certain persons are entitled to become a party to proceedings between parties to a marriage (see section 79(10)) and parties to a de facto relationship which has broken down (see Family Court Act 1997). You may be required to notify the third party about this application – see sections 79F, 79G, 79H and 79J (in relation to proceedings between parties to a marriage) and the equivalent sections of the Family Court Act 1997.

If an order or injunction is to be binding on a third party under Part VIIIAA or Part VIIIAB of the Family Law Act 1975, that third party must:

  • be named as a respondent to the application;
  • sign the draft consent order;
  • sign Part N (see supplementary page to the Application to Consent Orders).

Findings the Court must make

The matters the Court must consider when deciding an Application for Consent Orders are set out in the Family Law Act 1975 or the Family Court Act 1997. The Court has to be satisfied that:

  • for parenting orders, the arrangements are in the best interests of the child or children;
  • for property orders, the arrangements are just and equitable.

Making your application

Complete the Application for Consent Orders (Form 11). The form should be completed by all parties, and the parties must sign in the space provided at the bottom of each page.

  • Application for Consent Orders – Word .doc for completing electronically and printing
  • Application for Consent Orders – PDF for printing
  • Consent Orders Application Checklist

Draft consent orders

‘Draft’ consent orders are the orders you are proposing that the Court makes. A copy of your draft consent orders needs to accompany the consent order application.

You should include your draft consent orders in a Minute of Consent Orders.

There is more information about consent orders:

  • in the before you apply section
  • on the formatting your consent orders page
  • view examples of property and parenting orders

Supporting documents

The supporting documents depend on whether you are proposing parenting orders or property and financial orders.

Supporting documents – Parenting consent orders

If you are applying for parenting orders, you may also need to file the following supporting documents:

  • A copy of your marriage certificate
  • If you weren’t married, a copy of your children’s birth certificates
  • certified copies of any existing orders.

Supporting documents – Property and Financial consent orders

If the application is concerning property and financial issues, also file:

  • certified copies of any existing orders
  • copies of certificates of title of any real estate is to be transferred
  • copies of any binding financial agreements the parties have entered into
  • in the event superannuation splitting is proposed – include copies of the last 2 member statements for the fund being split and a letter from the superannuation fund trustee confirming they have no objection to the split.

De facto parties:

    • the original and copies of an affidavit in support of the application. The affidavit needs to provide evidence establishing your de facto relationship.

    Married parties

      • a copy of your marriage certificate
      • a copy of your divorce order (if appropriate)

      File the orders

      After you have prepared all the documents and before making any copies, any affidavits need to signed in front of an authorised witness (including Parts I, K or M of the Application for Consent Orders). Remember that you need to:

      • sign the draft consent orders the same day you sign your affidavit. Each party can sign on a different day.
      • sign each page of the draft consent orders, and date the last page.
      • file the application within 90 days of the date the first affidavit was signed.

      Following the signing of the documents, they are ready to file. You also need to file copies of your signed documents, so there are enough for the parties and the Court. In particular, you need to file:

      • the original and three copies of the draft Consent Orders, certified by the applicant or a lawyer.
      • the original and two copies of:
        • your Application for Consent Orders (Form 11)
        • any affidavits or other supporting documents

        Application fee

        There is a fee for applying for consent orders. See the fees page for more information.

        Next Steps

        After your application is filed, it will be considered by a Registrar.

        The Registrar will assess whether the proposed orders should be made, and

        A guide to writing warning letters

        It can be difficult to know whether it is the right time to make an application to court. Writing a warning letter can be a good way of avoiding court proceedings. Sometimes it is not safe to send a warning letter, in which case you may need to go directly to court without informing the other party. This legal guide will give you information about how and when to write a warning letter. Rights of Women publishes a number of other legal guides that may be useful including Family Court proceedings: where can I get advice and support? , Domestic violence injunctions and A guide to preparing for court hearings and safety in the Family Court. You can access our full range of legal guides at www.rightsofwomen.org.uk

        What is a warning letter?

        A warning letter is a letter or email which you write to inform someone that they must change their behaviour or you will make an application to court. For example, you may wish to ask someone to stop harassing you, or obtain permission to take your children abroad on holiday. By sending someone a warning letter you are giving them one last chance to resolve the issue by agreement without the need for court proceedings.

        It may be easiest to send the warning letter by email as you can print a copy. You can also post the letter to the recipient’s home address or to anywhere else you are sure they will receive it. If you are posting the letter, remember to make a copy.

        It may be that the warning letter resolves the issue. If the letter does not resolve the issue then you can make an application to court. When you make your application, remember to attach your warning letter and any response you received or any evidence you have that the warning letter was ignored by the other party. This will show the court that you have tried to resolve the issue amicably and that the other party was aware of your wishes and feelings but chose to ignore them.

        When might you send a warning letter?

        You may wish to write to someone to ask them to stop doing something. For example:

        • to stop harassing you or contacting you at all by telephone, text or social media
        • to stop being aggressive during handovers for child contact
        • to stop cancelling contact arrangements at the last minute

        You may wish to write to someone to ask them to agree to something. For example:

        • to allow you to return to the home to get your belongings
        • to move out of the family home
        • to give you permission to take the children abroad on holiday
        • to pay you some money that you are entitled to

        When should you not send a warning letter?

        Sometimes it will not be safe or appropriate to send a warning letter and you may need to go straight to court without informing the respondent. This is called a without notice application. Examples of situations where it may not be safe to send a warning letter include:

        • If you feel that sending a warning letter may anger your abuser and put you or your children at risk of harm, you should apply directly to court without giving notice to your abuser. For more information about protections you can apply for, see our legal guides Domestic violence injunctions , Forced marriage and the law, Harassment and the law and Female Genital Mutilation and the law
        • If you fear someone may be planning to take your child out of the country without your permission, it may be safer to apply to court for a Prohibited Steps Order without giving notice to the Respondent. See our legal guide Children and the law: relocation, holidays and abduction
        • If you are going through a divorce and you believe your husband or wife is going to remove their money from their bank accounts in order to hide it, you may wish to apply for a freezing order without giving them notice. For further information on financial remedies see A guide to financial remedies after marriage breakdown

        There may be other reasons why it is not safe to send a warning letter. If possible, seek legal advice before sending a warning letter.

        Top tips for writing warning letters

        • Only send a warning letter if safe to do so. If you are unsure whether it is safe, do not send the letter and get advice about obtaining an injunction.
        • Only send a warning letter if you have an address or email address where you can be reasonably sure the recipient will receive it
        • Make sure you keep copies of your warning letter
        • Include in your letter a date by which you expect a reply or action to be taken, if appropriate
        • Try not to engage in any other dialogue or correspondence which may confuse your position
        • If your letter is ignored and the problem continues, you should make your application to court
        • When you make your application you should also provide the court with a copy of your warning letter and any response you received and evidence that the letter was ignored
        • If you send the letter by post, it may be helpful to send it by special delivery or other tracked delivery service. Keep hold of the tracking number and confirmation of when the letter was delivered so you can show this to the court if you need to.
        • If you send the letter by email, it may be helpful to request a ‘delivery receipt’ and ‘read receipt’. This is so that you can check the email was delivered and that the other party has read the email. Keep hold of the receipts so that you can show them to the court if you need to.
        • You can use a solicitor to write and send the warning letter for you. You may be able to get legal aid to pay for the fee. If not talk to the solicitors in your area about how much they will charge to send a warning letter.
        • If you cannot get legal aid or pay for a solicitor then you can send the letter yourself.

        The law is complex and may have changed since this guide was produced. This guide is designed to provide general information only for the law in England and Wales. You should seek up-to-date, independent legal advice.

Show-not tell creative writing exercises

18 “Show Don’t Tell” Examples: How to Turn Bland Writing Into a Colorful Story

T hese examples of “Show Don’t Tell” will inspire you to tell better stories by directing a mental movie in your readers’ minds.

This article includes:

Show, Don’t Tell

Helen frowns while reading her draft story.

She purses her lips, and wonders, Why does the story feel flat? Why does it seem to drag on? Where has the drama gone? Is it too long?

Okay, she thinks. Time to cut down my story.

She removes a few sentences here, scraps a whole paragraph there, shortens another sentence. After crossing out words for over 20 minutes, she’s reduced her word count almost by half. Phew. With a sigh of relief, she treats herself to Jasmine tea with carrot cake.

But, hey, what happened to her story?

It seems even worse than before.

Sometimes stories are too short rather than too long

When a writer hasn’t painted vivid imagery, readers can’t picture what’s happening. That’s when a story feels flat. Devoid of drama. Dull.

To let readers experience your story, show rather than tell:

  • Telling means giving a brief, factual statement.
  • Showing means using sensory details and describing actions to direct a mental movie in your reader’s mind.

Showing is: She yawned.

Telling is: She is hungry.

Showing is: Her stomach rumbles.

And the best way to learn the difference between showing and telling?

Firstly, study how authors use this technique in their writing. Start with the examples below. And secondly, practice.

Show, Don’t Tell Exercise

You can use the 18 examples below for practice:

  • Review the “to tell” statements and consider how you can prove these statements (such as he’s nervous, she’s lonely). How can you see or hear that someone is nervous or lonely? Which actions demonstrate it?
  • Write down two or three actions or sensory details that show rather than tell.
  • Compare your notes to the “to show” examples.

Show Don’t Tell Examples: How to show emotions

To demonstrate someone’s emotions, think about what somebody does when they feel angry, hungover, or happy.

How can you see their anger in their movements? What does an angry face look like? What are they muttering or screaming? What would they say when thinking aloud?

Example #1: He’s nervous about his job interview

In his book Behold the Dreamers, Imbolo Mbue shows Jende is nervous:

Try as he might, he could do nothing but think about the questions he might be asked, the answers he would need to give, the way he would have to walk and talk and sit, the times he would need to speak or listen and nod, the things he would have to say or not say, the response he would need to give if asked about his legal status in the country.

His throat went dry. His palms moistened. Unable to reach for his handkerchief in the packed downtown subway, he wiped both palms on his pants.

Can you hear the internal monologue droning on in Jende’s mind?

After the monologue comes a tactile description of his throat going dry and his palms moistening, and then you can picture Jende wiping his palms on his pants. Vivid?

Example #2: She was angry

From Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep:

She slammed her glass down so hard that it slopped over on an ivory cushion. She swung her legs to the floor and stood up with her eyes sparking fire and her nostrils wide. Her mouth was open and her bright teeth glared at me. Her knuckles were white.

Have you notice the strong verbs in this example? Verbs like to slam, to slop over, to swing, to spark and to glare inject power into the writing.

Example #3: Cheryl has started the Pacific Crest Trail but she fears she can’t do this

In her book Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found, Cheryl Strayed shows her fear as follows:

Within forty minutes, the voice inside my head was screaming, What have I gotten myself into? I tried to ignore it, to hum as I hiked, though humming proved too difficult to do while also panting and moaning in agony and trying to remain hunched in that remotely upright position while also propelling myself forward when I felt like a building with legs.

So then I tried to simply concentrate on what I heard—my feet thudding against the dry and rocky trail, the brittle leaves and branches of the low-lying bushes I passed clattering in the hot wind—but it could not be done.

The clamor of What have I gotten myself into? was a mighty shout. It could not be drowned out. The only possible distraction was my vigilant search for rattlesnakes. I expected one around every bend, ready to strike. The landscape was made for them, it seemed. And also for mountain lions and wilderness-savvy serial killers.

Note how many sensory words are used in the above paragraph, like screaming, humming, panting, thudding, clattering, clamor, drowning out. As a reader, you can almost hear Cheryl’s fight with her fears.

Emotions like fear, nervousness, anger, and happiness remain abstract unless we show readers how such emotions manifest themselves in body language, dialogues, or actions.

Instead of telling readers you’re happy, can readers see you’re grinning from ear to ear?

Show Don’t Tell Examples: How to show feelings

Emotions are expressed through physical reactions—we can see someone’s emotions in their body language.

Feelings can be expressed physically, too, but they can also be internal perceptions of our mental state. This can make it harder to show rather than tell.

To show feelings, consider someone’s inner thoughts and think about a person’s environment or activities that may accentuate or symbolize their feelings.

Example #4: Kate feels lonely, despite sharing a house with four other people

In her book The Lido, Libby Page demonstrates Kate’s loneliness as follows:

Kate lives in a house-share with four other people – two students and two who do something but she’s not quite sure what. They come in at different times and shut their bedroom doors, occasionally passing on the way to the (one) bathroom.

They are people that she has heard grunting in the heat of sex (thin walls) and whose pubic hairs she has untangled from the shower plug, but she doesn’t know where they all came from before arriving here in this house, or what their favourite films are. She doesn’t really know them at all. And they certainly don’t know her. But what is there to know really?

Can you feel Kate’s loneliness, symbolized by the lack of interaction?

Example #5: She feels trapped in her hometown

In The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett, one of the protagonists explains why she feels trapped by her hometown’s smallness:

She’d trampled the same dirt roads her entire life; she’d carved her initials on the bottom of school desks that her mother had once used, and that her children would someday, feeling her jagged scratching with their fingers.

The initials on the bottom of school desks—carved by 3 generations of one family—symbolize the feeling of being trapped in the eternal monotony of small-town life. When will things ever change?

Show Don’t Tell Examples: How to show a person’s passion

You know I’m passionate about writing, don’t you?

But have I ever told you that?

Nope, I show my passion by sharing my best writing tips and tricks so you can tell better stories and share your ideas with gusto.

What are you passionate about? And which actions can prove your passion?

Get inspired by the 6 examples below …

Example #6: Frank, a music shop owner, is passionate about sharing music with people, even strangers

In her book The Music Shop, Rachel Joyce demonstrates Frank’s passion as follows:

‘We had another shoplifter today,’ [Frank] said, apropos of not very much at all. ‘First he flipped because we had no CDs. Then he asked to look at a record and made a run for it.’

‘What was it this time?’

‘Genesis. Invisible Touch.’

‘What did you do, Frank?’

(…) Frank had done the sort of thing he always did. He’d grabbed his old suede jacket and loped after the young man until he caught him at the bus stop. (What kind of thief waited for the number 11?)

He’d said, between deep breaths, that he would call the police unless the lad came back and tried something new in the listening booth. He could keep the Genesis record if he wanted the thing so much, though it broke Frank’s heart that he was nicking the wrong one – their early stuff was tons better.

He could have the album for nothing, and even the sleeve; ‘so long as you try “Fingal’s Cave”. If you like Genesis, trust me. You’ll love Mendelssohn.’

Isn’t it amazing how such a short story can characterize one person? It feels like you know Frank a little already.

Example #7: Young Araki loves dictionaries

In her book The Great Passage, Shion Miura describes Araki’s love for dictionaries as follows:

Araki began saving up his allowance for trips to the used bookstore. When a new edition of a dictionary came out, a copy of the earlier edition could usually be purchased on the cheap.

Little by little he collected a variety of dictionaries from different publishers and compared them. Some were tattered and worn. Others had annotations and underlining in red. Old dictionaries bore signs of the linguistic struggles of compiler and user alike.

Can you picture the dictionaries in Araki’s room?

Example #8: Sportcoat is a nature-lover

In his book Deacon King Kong, James McBride describes the protagonist as a nature-lover:

He was friends with anything that grew: tomatoes, herbs, butter beans, dandelions, beggar’s-lice, wild spur, bracken, wild geranium. There was not a plant that he could not coax out of its hiding place, nor a seed he could not force to the sun, nor an animal he could not summon or sic into action with an easy smile and affable strong hands.

I like how this paragraph expresses that enjoyment of nature is not a passive state but an active act—of summoning an animal into action and of coaxing plants grow and seeds to sprout.

Example #9: Robin Wall Kimmerer loves plants

While the ways to tell something are relatively limited, myriad ways exist to show something.

For instance, here’s how Robin Wall Kimmerer describes she’s a born botanist in her book Braiding Sweetgrass:

(…) how could I tell him that I was born a botanist, that I had shoeboxes of seeds and piles of pressed leaves under my bed, that I’d stop my bike along the road to identify a new species, that plants colored my dreams, that the plants had chosen me?

I love how those last words describe that botany is her calling: “The plants had chosen me.”

Example #10: Lars is passionate about good food

In his book Kitchens of the Great Midwest, J. Ryan Stradal demonstrates a passion for food as follows:

In the same fashion that a musical parent may curate their child’s exposure to certain songs, Lars had spent weeks plotting a menu for his baby daughter’s first months:

Week One NO TEETH, SO:

1. Homemade guacamole.
2. Puréed prunes (do infants like prunes?)
3. Puréed carrots (Sugarsnax 54, ideally, but more likely Autumn King).
4. Puréed beets (Lutz green leaf).
5. Homemade Honeycrisp applesauce (get apples from Dennis Wu).
6. Hummus (from canned chickpeas? Maybe wait for week 2.)
7. Olive tapenade (maybe with puréed Cerignola olives? Ask Sherry Dubcek about the best kind of olives for a newborn.)
8. What for protein and iron?

Can you picture Lars writing down the menu, while licking his lips?

And, thinking about your own passions, which actions describe them best?

Example #11: Chris doesn’t like going to the gym

Of course, just like you show what a person loves doing, you can also show their dislikes.

In his book The Man Who Died Twice, Richard Osman shows that Chris doesn’t like going to the gym:

Of all the machines at the gym, the bike suits him best. For a start you’re sitting down, and you can look at your phone while you’re using it. You can take things at your own pace – sedate in Chris’s case – but you can also speed up to look more impressive any time a muscled man in a singlet or a muscled woman in Lycra walks by.

And Chris comments on the exercise bike:

The heart-rate monitor was terrifying; Chris had seen numbers that surely couldn’t be right. The calorie counter was worst of all. Six miles of cycling to burn off a hundred calories? Six miles? For half a Twix? It didn’t bear thinking about.

Isn’t it amazing how just a few sentences give such a good impression of someone’s dislike of exercise?

Show Don’t Tell Examples: Turn weak action into a movie-like description

Don’t be fooled into thinking that action is always telling rather than showing.

Some action is so vague a reader can’t really imagine what’s happening.

As a writer it’s your task to help readers experience your story. So, give them enough vivid details to let a movie play in their mind.

Example #12: Moody shows Pearl the town

In her book Little Fires Everywhere, by Celeste Ng paints a vivid image of the town tour:

They went to Fernway, his old elementary school, where they clambered up the slide and shimmied up the pole and tumbled from the catwalk to the wood chips below. He took Pearl to Draeger’s for hot fudge sundaes.

At Horseshoe Lake, they climbed trees like children, throwing stale chunks of bread to the ducks bobbing below.

In Yours Truly, the local diner, they sat in a high-backed wooden booth and ate fries smothered in cheese and bacon and fed quarters into the jukebox to play “Great Balls of Fire” and “Hey Jude.”

Much more vivid than an abstract tour of the town, right?

Example #13: Jack Reacher fires his Barrett

In the thriller Die Trying, Lee Child slows down the action to heighten the drama:

First thing out of the barrel of Reacher’s Barrett was a blast of hot gas. The powder in the cartridge exploded in a fraction of a millionth of a second and expanded to a superheated bubble.

That bubble of gas hurled the bullet down the barrel and forced ahead of it and around it to explode out into the atmosphere. Most of it was smashed sideways by the muzzle brake in a perfectly balanced radial pattern, like a donut, so that the recoil moved the barrel straight back against Reacher’s shoulder without deflecting it either sideways or up or down.

Meanwhile, behind it, the bullet was starting to spin inside the barrel as the rifling grooves grabbed at it.

Then the gas ahead of the bullet was heating the oxygen in the air to the point where the air caught fire. There was a brief flash of flame and the bullet burst out through the exact center of it, spearing through the burned air at nineteen hundred miles an hour.

A thousandth of a second later, it was a yard away, followed by a cone of gunpowder particles and a puff of soot. Another thousandth of a second later, it was six feet away, and its sound was bravely chasing after it, three times slower.

That’s 225 words to describe less than one-hundredth of a second.

Lee Child is a master in pacing his stories. He keeps us reading for pages and pages before he at last reveals whether the bullet hits someone or not.

Remember, slow down the action to heighten the drama.

Example #14: Harold and his brother Raymond didn’t know what to say to Maggie

Even when nothing seems to happen, you can still paint a vivid picture as Kent Haruf does in Plainsong:

They were dumbfounded. They looked at her, regarding her as if she might be dangerous. Then they peered into the palms of their thick callused hands spread out before them on the kitchen table and lastly they looked out the window toward the leafless and stunted elm trees.

Can you imagine how you’d film this scene?

“Show don’t tell” works for objects and environments, too

A landscape is not a still life painting; you can detect subtle movements such as grass waving or with powerful activities like trees creaking in a storm.

Example #15: The ice surface is a chaos of crushing movement

In his book Endurance, Alfred Lansing describes the astonishing story of Ernest Shackleton’s expedition to cross Antarctica.

Here’s when their ship finds herself in a dangerous situation:

The whole surface of the ice was a chaos of movement. It looked like an enormous jigsaw puzzle, the pieces stretching away to infinity and being shoved and crunched together by some invisible but irresistible force. The impression of its titanic power was heightened by the unhurried deliberateness of the motion. Wherever two thick floes came together, their edges butted and ground against one another for a time. Then, when neither of them showed signs of yielding, they rose, slowly and often quiveringly, driven by the implacable power behind them. Sometimes they would stop abruptly as the unseen force affecting the ice appeared mysteriously to lose interest. More frequently, though, the two floes—often 10 feet thick or more—would continue to rise, tenting up, until one or both of them broke and toppled over, creating a pressure ridge.

Can you picture the scene? Does it make you feel scared, too?

Example #16: The ship is crushed by the ice

Here’s how Lansing describes what happens to the ship:

She was being crushed. Not all at once, but slowly, a little at a time. The pressure of ten million tons of ice was driving in against her sides. And dying as she was, she cried in agony. Her frames and planking, her immense timbers, many of them almost a foot thick, screamed as the killing pressure mounted. And when her timbers could no longer stand the strain, they broke with a report like artillery fire.

Lansing describes the ship as if she is a person screaming, dying, and crying out in agony. This is called personification, and it adds an extra dimension to the principle of showing.

Showing places readers directly into a scene, so they can experience what’s happening to a story’s character, even if that character is a ship.

Example #17: The porch was cluttered

Describing a room, a porch, or a garden can show us a lot about the person living there, too.

This is from Anne Tyler’s Redhead by the Side of the Road:

Micah had to swerve around a skateboard and a sippy cup on his way up the front steps, and the porch was strewn not only with the standard strollers and tricycles but also with a pair of snow boots from last winter, a paper bag full of coat hangers, and what appeared to be somebody’s breakfast plate bearing a wrung-out half of a grapefruit.

Reading that description is like watching a movie, right?

Example #18: Everything is in the right place

And here’s an opposite description of a neat person, also from Anne Tyler’s Redhead by the Side of the Road:

His sock drawer looked like a box of bonbons, each pair rolled and standing on end according to his instructions. Newspaper read in the proper sequence, first section first and second section next, folded back knife-sharp when he was done. Lord forbid someone should fiddle with the paper before him! He was a sign painter by profession, and all of his paints and his India inks were lined up by color in alphabetical order. The Bs I remember especially, because there were so many of them. Beige, black, blue, brown …

The 3 examples of neatness in the paragraph above sketch a persuasive image of how neat this person is. I love the simile at the start: “His sock drawer looked like a box of bonbons.”

How to show AND tell

The general advice is that we must show and not tell.

But that’s not always true.

Sometimes, it’s quicker to tell. So, you tell instead of showing to keep the pace of the story.

At other times you may want to both tell and show, so readers are clear how to interpret your story.

For instance, here’s an example of “tell and show” from Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner:

I remember these things clearly because that was how my mother loved you, not through white lies and constant verbal affirmation, but in subtle observations of what brought you joy, pocketed away to make you feel comforted and cared for without even realizing it. She remembered if you liked your stews with extra broth, if you were sensitive to spice, if you hated tomatoes, if you didn’t eat seafood, if you had a large appetite. She remembered which banchan side dish you emptied first so the next time you were over it’d be set with a heaping double portion, served alongside the various other preferences that made you, you.

Zauner first tells, suggesting that her mother showed her love by paying attention and making you feel comforted and cared for. Then she shows with the examples how her mother did that by paying attention to what you liked, and giving a bigger portion the next time.

And here’s an example from The Electricity of Every Living Thing by Katherine May:

What I hadn’t considered, though, was just how miserable the combination of walking fifteen boring miles and battling through oncoming rain would be. You can see absolutely nothing, because your head is angled relentlessly down. Your glasses steam up, but there’s no point in wiping them. Your neck begins to ache. Progress is surprisingly slow.

The first sentence above tells us that it’s miserable to walk in the rain. The next sentences show why that’s the case: That you can see absolutely nothing, that your glasses steam up, that your neck aches, and that progress is slow.

In just a few sentences, May first tells us and then shows us why walking in the rain makes her miserable.

When to show and when to tell

Telling is brief and factual.

Showing, in contrast, uses more words to direct a mental movie in your readers’ minds.

  • Add sensory details to make the story more vivid—this is how you allow readers to experience your story.
  • Slow down to describe action in more detail—this is how you increase the drama in your writing.

When you show rather than tell, your reader becomes an active participant in your story.

So, race through the less important parts of your story.

And dramatize the key parts, with detailed and vivid descriptions.

Now, imagine your favorite reader …

She’s sitting at her desk, sipping a cup of coffee.

She switches on her laptop, wipes the sleep from her right eye, and briefly massages her temples. Then she opens your email and clicks to read your blog post.

A lightbulb goes off in her mind and she whizzes off a quick email to thank you. She’s excited to implement your advice.

Show Don’t Tell: How to Show Not Tell in Writing With Exercises

Learning how to show don’t tell in writing is one of the most difficult—and important—parts of writing when you first start.

It’s what will give readers the coveted emotional attachment that forges true, long-lasting fans (and customers!).

Part of writing and publishing a book successfully is ensuring you have the highest quality writing, and this rule of show don’t tell is crucial for that.

When you start writing a book, it’s as if everyone around you becomes the expert. They tell you to show don’t tell, start with action, or even embellish your stories to sound “better.”

But how do you know what advice to take…and what do those writing tips even mean in the first place?

We’re here to help you understand showing versus telling and how that will actually help you write better and stronger.

It’s safe to say that the idea of showing not telling is one all writers should pay close attention to.

Show don’t tell in writing is a piece of advice that’s been around for longer than you might realize. Even if it didn’t have a phrase attached to it yet, the best authors out there have been using it for the duration of their careers (and even before, most likely).

Here’s how to show don’t tell in writing:

In fact, it’s why they’re known as the best writers of all time.

But although these writers knew how to bring their writing to life instinctually, not all of us are so lucky. We have to learn the process of show don’t tell, which can be tricky if you don’t know where to start.

Want to know which author you’re most like? Take the quiz and learn more about yourself and your writing style!

What does show don’t tell mean?

Show don’t tell describes writing in various forms with an emphasis on using and showing actions in order to convey the emotions you want readers to interpret, which creates a better experience for readers, instead of writing exposition to tell what happened.

By showing the actions and relationships and feelings instead of just telling the reader what happened, the writing comes off deeper, and more meaningful. This creates a much deeper connection and brings readers closer to you (or the main character).

At a first glance, this writing rule could be confused for the best day in Kindergarten when you bring your pet lizard in to show the class.

But in actuality, show don’t tell refers to the way in which you describe the experience you (or your character) went through.

And that makes them feel deeper and stronger about the story. It creates empathy and invests the reader – which is exactly what you need.

Writing your book introduction with an abundance of showing not telling is a powerful way to draw readers in for the duration of your entire book.

But this technique is much easier shown than told (hehe – see what I did there?).

[Pssst! Want to see some of our Students’ published books? Check out the SPS Library here!]

Show Don’t Tell Examples:

These examples are pretty basic but that’s the best way to gain an understanding of what this looks like. Keep in mind that your sentences may be more complex than these examples, but still full of “tell” words or phrases.

Be on the lookout for the details.

Show Don’t Tell Example #1:

Tell: “I heard footsteps creeping behind me and it made the whole situation scarier.”

Show: “Crunching hit my ears from behind, accelerating the already rampant pounding of my heart.”

Why this showing example is better:

In an instance such as this, you want the reader to feel what you did: the surprise and the sense of urgency, the fear.

Describing the crunching that hit your ears even through the pounding of your heart not only creates a powerful visual, but it also tells the reader the state your body was in during that intense moment. The first example is weak and does little to explain how you actually felt in that moment.

Show Don’t Tell Example #2:

Tell: “She was my best friend. I could tell her almost anything.”

Show: I met her at the town square, running in for our usual hug that carried on for far too long as we gushed about our lives with smiles lighting our faces.”

Why this showing example is better:

The first example of telling is shorter, but it doesn’t do a great job of really showing the impact you have on each other. Anyone can think of “best friend” and form an overall thought about what that looks like. But this isn’t just “anyone.” This is your best friend. Showing your relationship with one another is vital to forging that deeper connection.

Why should you show don’t tell in writing?

The entire point of showing versus telling in writing is to make a stronger emotional connection with your readers and hook them.

They already picked up your book for the killer title and eye-grabbing cover, but they need a reason to stay.

The idea behind this writing technique is to put the reader in your shoes. Make them feel, hear, and sense the situation as you did.

It’s about creating an experience for the reader instead of just a recount of events.

Doing this makes the reader want to root for you. They want to hear your whole story and in turn, they’ll read your whole book.

Why is showing not telling also important for non-fiction?

If you write fiction, you hear this advice all the time. However, all of you non-fiction writers out there, this piece of writing advice might be new to you.

Show don’t tell isn’t always the first thing a non-fiction writer thinks of when it comes to adding more intrigue to your story.

But it is the most vital for pulling your reader in and not only hooking them, but keeping them with you throughout the duration of your book.

Many fiction writers hear this writing advice often because it’s one of the best ways to make real people feel deeply for fictional characters.

When it comes to writing a story about your life and something you went through, the idea is the same. By showing and not telling, you’ll be able to guide them through your real-life situation as an experience and not just some book they’re reading while the kids are yelling at their video games and the oven alarm is blaring in the distance.

If you can show don’t tell the right way, the reader won’t even notice those distractions.

How to Show Don’t Tell in Writing

So now you know what it is and why it’s important, but how the heck do you actually do it? The process of taking a single story and crafting it to create more emotion can be difficult.

Thankfully, we have some of the best tips for showing not telling in writing.

#1 – Get rid of all basic sensory words

Phrases like, “I heard,” “I felt,” and “I smelled,” are all very weak. These are “telling” words and phrases (also commonly referred to as “filters”) that force the reader further away from you and your experience.

That’s exactly what you want to avoid.

Instead, you need to pull them into your world and into your psyche the very moment you were encountering the situation.

This is done by using strong verbs and other visual language.

Show Don’t Tell Exercise #1:

Step 1: Read through your writing and circle every telling word you can find. Anything that explains one of the 5 senses.

Step 2: Then write down specifics for each. If you heard someone creeping up behind you, how did you hear it? Was it crunching on gravel? Was it the shuffling of shoes against carpet?

Once you have these, rewrite those sections by explaining how the senses manifested to you and not just what you sensed (detailed below in the next writing exercise).

#2 – Don’t use “emotion explaining” words

This might be a bit tricky and you certainly don’t have to follow this one 100% of the time, but if you can get this right, it’ll make showing versus telling so much easier to grasp.

Think of any word to describe an emotion. I’ll help you out a little:

I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

These are all great words to describe how someone felt. However, they’re also very weak, unexciting ways to do so.

If you need your readers to understand how excited you were at any given time, show them. Don’t just tell them, “I was so excited!”

Show them the sweat beading your forehead as you raced to your destination. Show them the lifting of your cheeks as your lips parted way for an uncontrollable smile.

Show Don’t Tell Exercise #2:

Skim through your writing and circle every word that’s an emotion.

Then, for every emotion-explaining word you find, write down physical reactions of feeling that way.

Once you have a small list for each circled word, use it to craft a couple of sentences to describe (and show!) just what that looked like.

You can see the difference alone between these two paragraphs. By replacing all of the “telling” words and phrases, it develops into an experience for the reader and not just a retelling of what happened.

#3 – Describe body language

One of the best ways you can show not tell in writing is to use strong descriptive language when it comes to body language.

A person’s actions are really a gateway to their mind and how they feel.

You can tell if another person has a crush on someone just by paying attention to the way their body adjusts when in that person’s presence, right?

Showing versus telling in writing is exactly that. You want to show the reader what is happening and allow them to form a conclusion about how you or others in your story felt based on what they look like.

In all honesty, a lot of this one is about having faith that your audience can put two and two together.

Oftentimes, we tend to over-explain in an effort to make something obvious when really, the emotion is in the guesswork; it’s in allowing someone to draw their own conclusions. That over-explaining is what comes across as “telly” and not as emotionally compelling.

And honestly? It’s also pretty boring and flat.

If you do a great job of showing what you want readers to see, they’ll understand how someone feels – and they’ll even feel that way themselves.

That’s the power of showing not telling.

#4 – Use strong verbs

Showing itself can be extremely impactful, but using strong language and verbs in specific situations is even more powerful for adding depth to your story.

The way you make someone else actually feel how you did as you were going through the experience is to make sure the words you’re using directly reflect the emotions .

This can be a difficult task for those who aren’t sure what “strong language” looks likes, but I’ll make it easier for you.

Show Don’t Tell Exercise #3:

Think of a situation you want to explain in your book (or maybe something you already have written out).

Now imagine what feeling you want to convey through that scene. What do you want your readers to take away from that specific moment in your story? List those emotions so you can see all of them.

Take that list and start writing ways in which you can bring those emotions to life. What do those things mean for you? How would these emotions manifest during that specific time?

Now take those stronger verbs and words that depict a deeper emotion and craft your sentence or paragraph with those to reflect how you truly felt.

How does this sentence make you feel? Do you feel comfort, relaxation, and a sense that I love being there?

That was the purpose.

It’s about taking one specific idea or vibe or feeling and using what you know to transform it into something that’s showing not telling.

This specific example for show don’t tell can be a little time-consuming at first, but you will get the hang of it and these methods will soon become second nature to you.

#5 – Focus on describing senses

We told you to cut sensing words in tip #1, and that’s true, but with this comes the fact that you still have to describe what your character is feeling and sensing.

Showing versus telling is largely about allowing your readers to interpret what your characters are going through without just telling them.

This often means using all the senses you can to depict a scene.

Instead of saying, “She hated it there.” you can use her senses to show the readers that emotion.

For example: writing with showing like this “The faint scent of stale cigarette smoke met her nostrils, pulling her face into a familiar grimace.” allows your readers to understand that she finds where she is distasteful, without having to just say so.

#6 – Practice showing not telling every day

To master the tip of show don’t tell in writing, it takes time and practice to get it right. There’s a fine line of using showing versus telling in your writing.

With regular practice (by writing every day, we suggest), you’ll learn when to use telling and when to use showing in order to give the reader the best reading experience they have.

You can even practice by reading other books and your own writing. Recognizing areas of showing can help you do it more in your own works.

Writing Prompt: A Show, Don’t Tell Game

A few minutes ago I searched online, “Show, Don’t Tell.” In point sixty-six seconds, there were six hundred and seventy-five million answers to my search. Clearly, writers want to learn how to show and not tell!

But that number’s overwhelming. Sure, you can read lots of articles. But how can you actually get better at showing?

Here’s how: today, we’re playing a Show, Don’t Tell Game to practice.

Why Show and Not Tell

In grade school, your teacher had Show and Tell. You brought your stuffed Teddy Bear to class to show your class the bear, and you told them how your Teddy Bear came alive at night and fought the monsters under your bed.

If you wrote a story about the Teddy Bear fighting the monsters under your bed, you could say, “I was scared,” or you could show your fear. Did you hide under the covers? Did you wet the bed? Did you jump into bed quickly so the monsters didn’t have enough time to grab your legs?

“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
― Anton Chekhov

Show, don’t tell, to bring your reader into the story. Let them see the glint of light on broken glass, walk beside the protagonist, and live inside of the pages of your story.

Let the reader decide if your protagonist is scared. Don’t tell us, “She was scared.” Show us.

How to Show and Not Tell

Telling is stating information, and sometimes you will tell in a story. You might want to tell us your protagonist is a carpenter.

On the other hand, you could show she is a carpenter by describing her using her dual-bevel, sliding, compound miter saw.

You can show by using your five senses. What does it smell like, feel like? What does your protagonist hear?

If you’re still not sure you know how to show, check out these other great resources on The Write Practice. In The Secret to Show, Don’t Tell, Joe Bunting explains how to be more specific in your writing.

And in Use This Tip To Test If You’re Showing or Telling, Monica M. Clark shares an awesome strategy for recognizing your own tendencies towards telling: as you revise your manuscript, highlight adjectives and feelings. These words reveal when you’re telling, and you might be amazed at how little you’re showing in comparison.

Understanding the theory of “show, don’t tell” is only half the battle, though. Now, let’s play a game to practice!

Writing Prompt Show and Tell Game

I’ve made a list of possible emotions to use as writing prompts. Choose one — or think of your own! — and write for 15 minutes in the comments section. Then the readers will guess what you are trying to show in your writing.

Writing Prompts

Think of any adjective or feeling and see if we can guess what you are trying to show.

Show sadness. Writing “she was sad” would tell me what she was feeling. Instead, show me what sad looks like. Is sad staying in bed and not getting dressed? Missing work? Not taking a shower and eating only potato chips?

Show anger. Tell: He was angry. How can you show anger instead? Is anger throwing pots? (It is for me. I am a pot thrower.) Or is anger not talking?

Show fear. Tell: She was scared. Instead of writing that, how would you show fear?

Show surprise. Tell: She was surprised. Instead, how can you show surprise?

Have you ever felt like you were sucked into the pages of a story because the writing brought you in by showing? Please l et us know in the comments.

PRACTICE

Choose one of the prompts above or think of your own emotion or adjective. Take fifteen minutes to write a piece that shows us that feeling, then post it in the comments.

Please be kind and comment on someone else’s writing. What do you think they were trying to show?

The Creative Writing Program offers a full-time or part-time course of study by distance education leading to a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.

Students working in the program take a minimum of two years and a maximum of five years to complete their degree. Students study through online workshops, complemented by an optional 10 day summer residency at our Vancouver, BC campus.

As with the on-campus MFA, the Optional-Residency MFA is largely a studio program. Although students generally specialize in one area, they are required to write in three separate genres during the course of their degree; to produce regular, substantial quantities of work, and to maintain continuing interaction with the staff.

Workshops are designed to focus attention on the student’s own work and the process of peer critique and discussion.

Thirty-six credits of work, including a creative thesis, are required for the MFA. The MFA degree awarded on completion is identical to the degree granted to on-campus students.

All candidates are selected on the basis of work submitted. Scholarship funding and Teaching Assistantships are available. Please see our website for guidelines.
