Before you read the “spoiler” bullet points below take a careful look at the text. Imagine it is a text you are using for your DP Language A Language and Literature assessments: the individual oral, the HL essay, or Paper 1 and analyze it accordingly. (This text would not be appropriate for Paper 2).
Some elements of the text to consider:
- The different fonts used in the text and their significance (the “How to be a” font is more traditional / concrete while the “writer” font is a bit more flowing / creative)
- The use of the hand and pen – a reference to a creative “writer”
- The flowing / artistic shapes drawn by the pen as a metaphor for creativity / creative writing
