Online Creative Writing Courses
Online Creative Writing Courses for Children & Teenagers via Zoom
This winter I am offering online creative writing courses to children aged 8+ and teenagers aged 13+.
My online creative writing courses are ideal for students who love reading and talking about stories! And they want to learn how to write them!
I teach students from all over Ireland, Germany, France, the U.K. and the United States!
In Venue face-to-face courses will be coming also. Please let me know if you're interested in Face-to-face workshops (and where you are located). You can express your interest in Face-to- Face courses here firstname.lastname@example.org
Feedback on writing
These online creative writing courses are for small groups of children (max 12). The same children will attend every week for a full term. Each class lasts for 60 minutes.
- Class will be made up of presentation of new material, group discussion, writing time and feedback on writing.
- Children will spend time writing individually or in small groups in break out rooms.
- They will be given the option to read their work aloud during class time and receive feedback.
- Students who are not comfortable reading their work aloud to the group may read it aloud to me in a breakout room, if they wish.
- All feedback will be constructive and encouraging.
- Students will also be encouraged to give positive feedback on one another’s writing.
- Twice during the eleven week term, students will be invited to email me 500 words of their work for written feedback.
- Courses take place on the video conferencing platform Zoom. Students will need a smart phone, table, or laptop and good broadband to participate.
