Inkheadcreativewriting present The May Half Term Creative Writing Course (Kids)

We show the group how to write a story based on two characters – a hero and a villain. We will ask them to think of what the main character wants, what is at stake, and who is stopping the character (the villain) getting what he or she wants. We will show them how to plot a story, describe the setting, build up the conflict, use pace and timing and end the story with panache.

Wednesday 29th May – Friday 31st May

Suitable for 8+
Course Price £150
(Discounts for 2)


About Inkhead

We have been running creative writing workshops and clubs in schools and libraries for the past decade. We use a workshop approach to show and encourage children age 7 to 14 to write the stories they want to write. This involves showing them how to develop believable characters; plot a story; use the setting in a dynamic way and pick the “right” words, similes, and metaphors to describe both characters and setting.

Our tutors are all writers who have studied creative writing and are writing now. We understand the process of trying to express what is in your imagination through the written word. Experienced tutors, workshop leaders, and teachers, we enjoy the creative interaction with the children who come on our courses.

Inkhead offers group tuition, one to one tuition and story critiquing as well as regular clubs and holiday courses. We can help your children develop their writing for the 7+ and 11+ but we mainly want to inspire them to fall in love with the power and wonder of writing.
