We are thrilled to have our Creative Writing Course reviewed and featured in West London Kids:
“My daughter attended the 12 week Creative Writing course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Her writing came on tremendously and I love that she saw it as a fun activity to go to rather than what is basically English tuition in small groups. The creative writing text book which goes with the course is great and between that and the course her writing is now a pleasure to read. She loved her course tutor as well and looked forward to going each week. I would highly recommend this course to all children between age 9 and 11 and I will definitely consider sending my son when he is the right age for the course.” (Felicity, parent)
“I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am at the progress [my son] is making with his writing doing your course. This week he had to complete a piece of writing for school and sat down to it without any meltdown, no fuss and wrote a great piece using all the skills you have taught and was very excited with the result – reading me out various descriptive sentences. Honestly it’s the best result of lock down for me..” (Stephanie, parent)
“My daughter is 9 years old and loves creative writing. She did the Bright Light Creative Writing course and absolutely loved it! The course started face to face and then moved online when social distancing measures began and both worked perfectly. The course gently introduces the children to different skills to improve their writing and as the course progresses, the skills are combined and the children begin to write their own stories. My daughter looked forward to her creative writing class each week and grew in confidence as the course progressed. She is able to identify the different techniques writers use to make their stories engaging and imaginative and to use these skills in her own writing. The course is well structured and suitable for all abilities.” (Nicola, parent)
