SUMMER 2019 CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
Six weeks. Three weeks of fiction writing; three weeks of non-fiction writing. Lots of creativity and fun!
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 7 – 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 three 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 half of the workshop, they will work on non-fiction writing. They will learn about different types of essays, brainstorm ideas, 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.
