CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS
I am really pleased to be offering creative writing workshops online and in the heart of Caversham to children aged 7-14.
The gorgeously creative space run by Made By Tamalia in Caversham will be our host again this year.
AFTER SCHOOL CREATIVE WRITING CLUB
I will be starting two new 6 week courses after school on Tuesdays, beginning 13th September at Creativ.Spaces studio in Caversham.
The cost of the 6 week course is £75 per child.
3.30 - 4.30 for writers aged 7-11 - structuring a short story.
4.40 - 5.40 for writers ages 7-11 - fun writing exercises.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EMPHASIS ON BOTH OF THESE COURSES WILL BE WRITING FOR FUN. FOR THIS REASON I WILL NOT BE OFFERING STRUCTURED MARKING BUT WILL BE GIVING VERBAL FEEDBACK AND ENCOURAGEMENT DURING THE SESSIONS.
All courses must be paid for in full before the first session in order to secure your place. I'm afraid I am no longer able to offer free taster sessions or discounts for missed sesssions. Courses particularly aimed at those working towards entrance exams are focussed on strucrure, planning and writing tools to improve confidence and understanding of how to set out a piece of work for school entrance tests. This element of the test varies from school to school, espcially the timings. I teach to a 5 minutes planning/ 15 minutes writing structure and equip all children with a variety of tools that will elevate their writing. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT PRIVY TO THE SPECIFICS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL AND WOULD URGE YOU TO CONTACT SCHOOLS DIRECTLY WITH SPECIFIC QUESTIONS RELATED TO THEIR TESTS.
