“My 9 year old absolutely loved your creative writing course. Every week she built on her existing skills, she was challenged (in a good way!) and the feedback was encouraging and useful. The tutor was super friendly and the course has really helped to grow her confidence and given her the skills to write with greater depth. Thank you!” (parent)

*SOLD OUT IN SPRING 2024*

Our 10-week Igniting Writing Course has been specially designed for Years 4-6 children. The aim of the course is to build and feed your child's love of creative writing. It seeks to inspire and encourage a love of writing.

As part of our commitment to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds, this course is being offered for free to children who are eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals in the UK. We will ask for current evidence of this. The course is run by a volunteer tutor.

We ask for full commitment on this course, so that maximum progress can be made. We will assess the progress made by each student, by assessing a piece of written work at the start of the course and throughout. We use our own form of assessment, which can be read about here.

Please note that this course is adapted from our  ‘Core Skills and Story Writing Course’. Within this course, we cover writing skills and language, which is essentially the first half of our Core Skills and Story Writing Course. Some of the tasks are different from the tasks in the Core Skills course. During the course, we focus on learning different skills or techniques, including mastering figurative language, using the Show Don’t Tell technique, and learning how to build suspense effectively.
