Learning to write is one of the most important skills kids can learn. Creative writing allows kids to express their feelings, ideas, and beliefs. By engaging in more creative writing, your child will develop stronger self-awareness and observation skills. In addition, characterisation enables your child to put themselves in different people’s shoes, which cultivates empathy.
Creative writing entails more than forming one sentence after another. It fosters imagination and inspires children to have fun with writing. By expressing themselves in ways that are creative and compelling, they learn how to win over an audience’s attention.
The workshop will be held over 3 days on Microsoft Teams. 11:00 am to 01:00 pm on Sat -Sun; and 05:00 pm to 07:00 pm on Monday. You will receive an e-Certificate on completion of the workshop (minimum 80% attendance).
