Writing creatively can be a wonderful experience for many. According to research, there are 5 key benefits to creative writing:
- It encourages us to use our imaginations.
- It develops reading, writing and learning skills.
- It can develop self confidence and identity.
- It teaches empathy, as we place ourselves in someone else’s shoes.
- It provides an emotional outlet.
We already run a weekly Creative Writing Club, which is very informal – there are no red marking pens! The children are encouraged to try out their ideas, often pictorially to begin with, in a relaxed environment.
However, we have been frequently asked to provide something more structured, which supports the curriculum. And so we have shuffled our time-table around, in order to offer the following class:
The class is for children who are capable writers already, but find it difficult to ignite their creative spark.
As with all of our tuition, classes are £16.50 for 50 minutes, paid weekly in advance. However, if you book and pay for a term in advance, we are offering one free lesson. This is non-transferable and refundable. As the first block is just a half term, the offer is £16.50 weekly or £107.25 for the half term (one lesson at half price).
