Creative Writing for Teens

Holiday Workshop - 12-16 years

Next Available: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri
(Private Dates Available)
3 hours
Group Size: 4 - 8

Description

This workshop is aimed at young teenagers aspiring to be fantastic storytellers. Maybe you want to win the local short story competition advertised in a local paper/ at your school or simply improve your skills.

Whether starting out, or fostering a growing interest in creative writing, the program helps budding authors develop character, organise plot, design a narrative and turn the interesting into the amazing!

Bring along your own bag of tricks to use for inspiration, for example: photographs, newspaper clippings, brainstorm journals, hand-drawn illustrations, music – whatever feeds your unique imagination.

With the help of the team leader learn how these ‘seeds’ of thought have the potential to grow into your own original stories. These classes are super relaxed and aim to provide a space for being yourself, allowing you to ask all types of weird and wonderful questions to explore and develop your talent.

About your tutor:

Dr Rebecca Law is a published writer of 20+ years’ experience. She also works privately as an English Tutor.
