Do you want to write for children? Have you written some already, but would like some extra guidance and tips? Or would you like to have a go?

In these sessions you will be looking at writing in all the very different age ranges in children's writing, you will be attempting to write for these different categories and also learning some tips and techniques all writers need to improve their writing and make their own the best it can be.

If any of the above applies to you, don't hold back, come and give these classes a go. What have you got to lose?

Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at adults who would like to learn the art of writing for children, build their confidence and improve their creative writing skills.

The course is accessible for all abilities, however we suggest speaking to us if the person has a disability that may impact on writing. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible. 

What will you learn on this course?
The course will bring some fun into creative writing and provide techniques for writing for children and techniques to improve creative writing. Carol’s approach is about building confidence and finding enjoyment as well as embracing the drafting process. 
You will be encouraged to develop techniques in your own writing and explore the idea that writing is a process for continued development in order that you feel motivated to continue your work at home. The course may involve some group work and collaborative writing and students will have the opportunity to share their work and receive feedback.
