Creative Writing Workshops for Kids and Teens! (Summer holidays)

Summer 2021 Creative Writing Workshop

 Don’t delay! Registration for the Summer 2021 workshop is open already! See below for details.


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 an Online Creative Writing Workshop for children aged 9 – 15 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 two weeks, 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 Saturday of this segment, they will read their work to the class, and learn how to give and receive criticism.

During the second two weeks of the workshop, they will work on non-fiction writing. They will learn about different types of essays, research into a topic, compile facts and figures, and write a detailed essay. They will also present their essay to the class, and receive feedback, and suggestions for improvement.

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

♦ Explore writing different types of essays

♦ 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.

Dates: 31st July to 21st August 2021

Ages: 9 – 15 years

Venue: Virtual Classroom (Skype)

Time:  Saturdays, 10.00am to 12.00 noon

Fees for six-week workshop: N35,000 or £60

Please provide your children/teenagers with a notebook, a couple of pens/pencils. They can also have a few of their favourite books that they enjoy reading, for our discussions. We look forward to welcoming your children to our virtual classroom.

The good news is, you can register and have your children attend the workshop wherever you are. All they’ll need is a laptop, access to Skype and tons of enthusiasm!
