Student Reviews

My nine-year-old is your average girl, she has a big imagination and talks all the time so, this course was a perfect outlet for her. I did not send her to write a masterpiece or to make millions but to have some fun. She enjoyed every second of it! Her little seed of an idea blossomed into a great story with adventure, great descriptions, and dialogue.

He loved the course. A big thank you to the teacher! My son has a very colourful imagination and loves to draw comics and write stories.

I’ve been suggesting for years that he writes his stories down so he can read them in years to come…so maybe this will encourage him to do that.

further information

This course covers everything young learners need to become great writers! Each day the teacher will focus on a new aspect of fiction writing, while focusing on the basics such as sentence structure, varied vocabulary and effective punctuation.
Budding writers will learn how to structure a well-paced, engaging plot with twists and turns along the way. They will understand how to develop interesting characters and create a vivid setting for their story. They improve their descriptive writing throughout the week as every module allows for writing practice with feedback from our experienced teacher.

The teaching approach focuses on group and pair work, collaborative writing, individual writing and reflection and the use of images, drama, music and movies to help students find inspiration for their stories.



Young writers will learn how to proofread and self-edit their work along with learning how to type and format their stories electronically. Our teachers will encourage authors to find or illustrate images that will enhance their stories. They will improve their digital literacy skills by using online software to create and e-book. 

The Creative Writing modules are as follows:

  1. Creating Worlds – creating a vivid and immersive setting for your story.
  2. Great Characters – developing a character with depth that your readers can believe in
  3. Story and Plot Twists – learning how to write a well-paced story with a twist to surprise your readers
  4. Editing and Proofreading – checking your work and improving sentence structure and vocabulary
  5. Formatting your E-Book – learning how to create a beautiful e-book and adding illustrations, borders and colour. Students will present their finished work on the last day.
