Thomas was worried a creative writing workshop would feel like a lesson, but he found the content very funny and entertaining. He came out bursting with energy and very proud of what he’d written, and I think we’ve seen an improvement in his school writing since he’s been back at school. Thank you.

My son has always complained and struggled with creative writing for school, but he absolutely loved your ‘Mysterious Maps’ workshop this summer. After a few hours with you he couldn’t stop talking about the worlds he was creating, and how thrilling writing now seemed. You transformed writing from something that was a chore into something that is an art.
— Elizabeth, Alexander’s mum
We all spoke very highly of your workshops afterwards, and Ricco thoroughly enjoyed himself. We’d certainly be keen to book again.

A big thank you to you; Maya had a great time every day of the workshop.

THIS SUMMER HOLIDAY I’m running ten creative writing workshops for 8-11-year-olds, taking place from Monday 29th July — Friday 9th August. We’ll be creating new worlds, inventing our own monsters, exploring alternative universes, doing a lucky dip for story ingredients, and hunting for the most daring descriptions possible. The sessions are about encouraging creativity, learning new writing techniques, boosting confidence and having fun. Book a place here.

Thanks for Friday – Arielle had a great time and would love to do it again. She said it felt like it only lasted about 10 minutes, which I took to mean it flew by as she was having so much fun. I loved that her story revolved around not just trampolining, but specifically trampoline socks!
