Description

Hello parents!

What do you do when your children are off school on holiday? Do you let them laze around all day, or do you involve them in a fun and creative activity? I think the second option is much better, don’t you?

That’s why I’ve put together three Creative Writing Workshops for children aged 7 – 16 for the summer break! The purpose of the workshops is for them to engage their minds creatively, and work on writing both fiction and non-fiction.

In the first week, they will write a fictional story. They will create their story from scratch, given a concept. They will brainstorm, create characters, create an engaging plot, write a story, edit it and rewrite it. Then on the last day of the workshop, they will read their work to the class, and learn how to give and receive criticism.

During the second week, they will work on non-fiction writing. They will research into a topic, compile facts and figures, and write a detailed essay or report on their findings. They will also present this report to the class, and receive feedback, and suggestions for improvement.

At the end of the workshop, I will publish the best stories and essays in a writing magazine that each child will receive at the end of the year.




During the workshop, the children will:

♦ Learn the different concepts of storytelling and essay writing

♦ Discover how to weave the elements together to create a good story

♦ Create their own characters

♦ Write a story of featuring their characters going on interesting adventures

♦ Learn how to conduct research on a given topic

♦ Learn to listen, read, discuss and give feedback on each other’s work

♦ Improve their grammar, spelling and vocabulary

♦ Improve their punctuation, especially with writing dialogue.
