Creative Writing Class for Teenagers

With Eve Ainsworth. Starting 25/01/2023

DURATION: 6 weeks

Start Date: January 25th, 2023 – 2 places remaining

(If you booked a course commencing January 25th, with Emma Pass, this course is still going ahead as scheduled. We just removed it from the site as it was full and to prevent overbooking.)

Our classes are in huge demand and are filling up very quickly, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Places are strictly limited to 10 participants.

This creative writing class for teenagers fits in with a student’s schedule, as you don’t have to be online at any particular time or day. You will be given weekly notes and assignments to help you. Your tutor will read each assignment and provide written feedback. However, the main thing is to have fun when writing!

Students will receive an email booking confirmation within 48 hours of payment. If you do not see this email, please check your Spam/Junk folder.

Week One – Start Where?

Getting started is often the hardest part. The greatest idea of all-time pops into your head, only for a blank page to glare back. This week, we will ease that pressure by setting ourselves meaningful writing goals, making the act of starting to write feel less scary, and more possible. 

Week Two – Inspiration Is Everywhere

A cat sniffing your bowl of cereal. The unexpected text message from an old friend. This week we will use what is around us to help generate and develop our writing ideas, learning how anything can find its way into a story. 

Week Three – Characters That Come Alive on The Page

More than interesting description and dialogue, this week we explore the idea of a complex character, narrator, or speaker of a story, and what tips and tricks can be used to create a character that both you and your reader can truly invest in.

Week Four – If in Doubt, Describe  

This week we will look at how description can both set and turn a scene on its head. Using everything from carefully placed sensory details, to zooming in and out of the action unfolding, it’s time to let your writing truly leap off the page.

Week Five – Structure, Structure, Structure 

This week we lay out what is happening, when, and where. We will explore how learning the rules, only to break them, can work powerfully when it comes to the structure of a story, and how unexpected twists and turns can surprise both writer and reader.

Week Six – What We Did, What We Will Do Next 

In this week, we reflect on what we have achieved (no matter how seemingly small), before looking ahead to the steps we might take to continue writing – be that the ongoing revision of a current story or carving out space in your daily life to keep going, and growing, as a writer.
