Welcome to the Creative Writing Club for Children and Teenagers!
TAW Creative Writing Club provides an opportunity for your children to explore different techniques of writing fiction and non-fiction - from short stories to essays. It is an opportunity for young aspiring authors to start writing and honing their craft early. If you have a budding writer living with you, or you want to encourage a young person to explore and improve their writing skills, then this will be of great interest to you!
Young scholars will greatly benefit from taking part in this creative writing club. They will gain confidence in their own creative abilities, be able to brainstorm different ideas on various topics, improve their spelling, grammar and punctuation, and become creators of their own content, instead of just consumers.
The children will:
- Improve their creativity and imagination through writing exercises and prompts
- Improve their language and vocabulary
- Experiment with new ideas through free writing
- Improve their spelling, grammar and punctuation
- Enjoy writing based on child-friendly themes
- Learn what elements make a good story and how to weave them together
- Gain an awareness and appreciation of different writing styles
- Learn how to read, discuss and give feedback on each other’s work
- Have an opportunity to get published!
.......and lots more!
