with Drama Writing Mentor Chloe Bradwell

This 30-minute workshop for any undergraduate Drama students will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to write an essay. Writing mentor, Chloe Bradwell, will share a simple framework to help you write a coherent essay and improve your grades.

The session will cover the following topics:

- Proof-reading

This session is targeted at all undergraduate students in the department of drama. You will also be given the opportunity to book an individual 1:1 mentoring session where Chloe will give you feedback on specific assignments.

Chloe is a current PhD student in the department of Drama at the University of Exeter. She has been working as a writing mentor for the past 3 years, providing both training workshops and 1:1 sessions that have consistently helped BA students improve their grades.

Feedback from previous students on the mentoring programme:

  • Very beneficial in how I structure my assignments and approach the planning process.
  • Gave great feedback on the essay, didn't make me feel bad for my mistakes and gave me options on how to fix them.
  • Before I was getting around 50 in my essays. The first essay I did after the mentoring session was a 63
  • I feel that the feedback I was given today gave me clearer understanding of how I can improve my essay so I feel more confident on what steps I need to take to improve.
  • After 3 years stuck at high 2:1, I've finally got my first 1st!
  • The going through the specific feedback of the essay and the structure points of a future essay moving forward was very helpful!
  • I received a first on my next paper after mentoring
