I am running a 6 week creative writing club on Tuesdays beginning 14th September at Made By Tamalia's studio.

3.30 - 4.30 for writers aged 7-10

4.30 - 5.30 for writers ages 11-15

 Over the course of 6 weeks, we will be building a piece of creative writing using tools to assist structure and content. Every week I will offer feedback and advice as well as editorial tips for each individual.

The cost of the 6 week course is £70 per child

I am also offering online workshops for individuals or small groups. I have limited availability left for the summer so please do get in touch if you would like to book. You are welcome to put a group together as the cost reduces per child when the workshop is shared.

The emphasis of these workshops is very much on the CREATIVE and I fill each session I teach with fun as I truly believe this is the very best way to encourage children to release their imagination and become better writers.
