After School and Weekend Writing Workshops

For Children aged 6-13yrs

Currently all our children’s courses are taking place via Zoom with courses starting up again in September 2020

To book or to find out more information email charles@readnowwritenow.org.uk or see our Facebook page for course times and days.

Our writing workshops are aimed to help children construct and write excellent stories.

We use a workshop approach to guide and encourage children of all abilities to use their own ideas, knowledge, and experience to create the stories they want to write. Our writing exercises, prompts, games, and feedback on stories are all designed to promote a love of writing.

Writing can not only just help everyone increase their literacy skills. Research has shown that writing can also boost confidence, health and wellbeing as well as expand the ability to communicate and think critically.

Feedback from our children’s creative writing workshops is highly positive with parents noting changes in their child’s schoolwork as a direct consequence of their attendance at our sessions. Further the children all enjoy the relaxed, informal, and fun structure of the workshops.

The workshops follow the Key Stages of the National Curriculum and the themes help children write independently.

Children are encouraged to share their stories with other members of the workshop and we also hold storytelling events for the children to read out their stories to an audience.

Each half term we write a short story. Recent themes include: HTML Unordered List
  • Climate Changers
  • Stories from 2050
  • Scary Stories
  • Murder Mystery
  • Toy Tales
  • A Christmas Carol
