This course has now finished with some great results – we are in the process of compiling stories, poems and audio readings of the children’s work.
Our new series of creative writing workshops for Year 6 students are going from strength to strength, with 18 pupils from four local schools coming together once a month in a unique beachfront location.
This particular course enables students to release their creativity by encouraging them to develop a writing habit, and giving them the tools to shape and craft their writing. Workshops in journal-keeping, flash fiction, poetry and the short story give them access to a variety of creative writing mediums, which are explored freely outside of the classroom environment, with the added benefit of sharing ideas with peers from other schools.
At the end of the course students will have a body of work across all the mediums, as well as audio files to share online. They will have renewed confidence to take their creative writing skills into KS3 and beyond.
