This monthly workshop is designed to teach children aged 10-14 the fundamentals of writing and literary analysis in a fun interactive setting.
Each month, there will be a different theme, with students learning about various elements of the writer’s toolkit (e.g., using metaphors, similes, alliteration, etc.), proper use of punctuation, paragraphs, and writing styles (e.g., narrative, informative, summarative, and opinion/argument writing). The workshops will be a combination of lessons, exercises, games and group discussions. Depending on the theme, there will be snacks, contests, and small prizes to keep participants excited about learning.
