About The Event

Course overview

Delivered over 5 days in a short intensive burst, this children’s writing course will cover writing books for children aged 3-16 and will teach students how to apply theoretical knowledge to practical writing tasks.

This highly practical week-long introduction to Creative Writing will explore writing techniques in the context of children’s books, including characterisation, settings, dialogue and plotting. It will also examine how to tackle books for different age ranges, from picture books to Young Adult.

Towards the second half of the week students will learn how to refine their writing and understand what publishers and agents are looking for.

In each session, students will tackle writing exercises and there will be some element of sharing work. We will also look at texts from a variety of published children’s authors.

By the end of the Creative Writing course students should have a strong grasp of what it takes to succeed in the tough but rewarding world of writing.

Our Creative Writing course is the ideal preparation for our Creative Writing Intermediate course.
