Firstly, you should be reading articles from papers like The Independent and The Times EVERYDAY!!


The Guardian culture section is also a good place to find examples of good writing. For example:

Article about Tolstoy
Article on disney's first black princess

Also, in the comment section you'll find good examples of writing to argue and persuade. For example:

article on smoking

For those of you who are not aware of it, please, PLEASE listen to some of the podcasts from This American Life

A lot of these stories are not only heartbreaking and fascinating, but could also provide some really original ideas for your original writing coursework.



For example, listen to Act one of this episode, based on the book 'The Disappearance.'
