Creative writing

October 22 to December 11

8 weeks

$160

Suitable for ages 10 and up

An introduction to the wonderful world of word. Teaching students how to access the stream of words hidden inside of themselves and just waiting to come out. Letting go of attachment to outcome, fear of judgement and allowing the words to roll out, what ever they might be.

Using literary cues, brainstorming, theatre games and creative ideas to allow the student to write in an improvisational manner. Students are often surprised at just how many words they have inside, and how creative and clever they can be with them when they let go.

Including an exploration of metaphor, writing poetry in gibberish to explore form, phrasing and alliteration; understanding archetypes to build characters and symbolism to create mood and scenes.
