Descriptive Writing for GCSE: Using the Senses

Using the senses in descriptive writing is often taught at a very basic level with clichés being the norm. This series will show you some more sophisticated techniques, explaining assonance, sibilance and other stylistic choices you can use to give your writing that extra oomph. You'll be using soundscapes like Charles Dickens in no time! If you want more, go to my resources tab to get some more practice questions and example essays.
