Creative Writing / Story Telling Workshop for Children.

I specialise in running fun and engaging creative writing lessons for children. These lessons are to spark children's Imagination and improve confidence in their writing, spelling and Grammar.

I have a background in Drama education and therefore my teaching style is practical and interactive. In this creative writing workshop, we will create characters, journey to different lands and imagine ourselves in all different scenarios.

I find that through these creative writing sessions, children feel less worried about making mistakes in their writing because we imagine the stories together before putting pen to paper. By the time they put pent to paper there is less of a barrier, our imagination has been flowing and worries of making mistakes have gone out the window.

Fighting the blank page and learning to write
Writing is a complex process, be it writing a novel, poetry, an essay or even a diary. I write since my 8 years and I have since developed a writing program (via mediation and automatic writing) which allowed me to write essays on art and write many short stories, including some have been published in school newspapers. This course is intended for all interested and aims to choose a different angle to solve white page syndrome. Together we can learn what are the best tools for you to express your creativity.
