Young Writers Summer School
Do you enjoy putting pen to paper, and love building stories of your own? Would you like to spend time improving your writing alongside other young people who share your enthusiasm? The Young Writers Summer School offers students aged 11-14 the opportunity to explore and practice diverse types of writing. Taking in a wide range of forms across prose, poetry and reportage, we will craft individual and group compositions within a friendly and supportive environment. By carefully studying classic examples of fiction and poetry, this course encourages students to read critically in order to develop their own writing with precision, flair and imagination. It also places a strong emphasis on sharing work, and on offering and receiving constructive feedback and suggestions for development.
The structure of the course across four days ensures an enjoyable variety of games, activities and exercises and provides a dynamic mixture of discursive engagement and personal endeavour.
Throughout all sessions students will benefit from the sensitive guidance of our friendly team of tutors, and from small class sizes (max 14) which ensure that there is plenty of space for each voice to be heard. An intensive four days of exploration, discussion, studied practice and feedback will leave participants with a strong grasp of creative techniques, plentiful stimulating examples, and a sense of direction and possibility for their future writing.
