Creative Writing After School Clubs

‘Budding Authors’ is an after-school creative writing club suitable for children aged 6 – 11 who love writing stories.  Over the course of eight weeks we will have fun trying all kinds of creative writing, for example:

  • Creating ‘real’ characters
  • Writing amazing opening lines
  • Describing places in imaginative ways
  • Writing dialogue that really works
  • Plotting out stories using a giant flowchart

Children will get the chance to read their work aloud in a workshop environment and get valuable feedback from their peers.

At the end of the course, an anthology of the children’s writing, together with any illustrations, will be self-published in picture book format.  Copies will be available to buy at a cost of around £6.00 each (this varies according to the size of the book and the number of copies ordered).  There is no obligation to buy. (Click on the image to the left to view examples of previous book covers.)


Workshops cost £6.00 per child per week for a one hour session (subject to additional costs)  The full cost of the eight week course is payable in advance.
You can download a copy of the above as an information sheet to hand out to parents and children here.
