Two exercises on the use of creative writing in English Literature seminars. The exercises have been designed for use by English lecturers seeking to develop their skills. One activity is for use by an individual lecturer working alone; the other is for use in a group setting. Both activities suggest ways of turning to pedagogic use an activity which students of the English subjects are expected to be able to perform, but which teachers all too often simply see as a medium of assessment. They propose and exemplify writing as a pedagogic tool. There is also an overview of the activities.
