Halloween

Those scary essays!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our Halloween stalls the other day, where our (hopefully not too scary) staff asked you what's the scariest thing about writing essays.

Don't let your essay become a nightmare!

You might think (or hope!) that essay writing was something just for school but lots of university assignments require you to write an essay in some form; defined by Skills for Learning as "an extended piece of writing which attempts to answer a question or respond to a statement"
