What Will You Learn?

What is your child’s favourite story?

Maybe it’s a swashbuckling pirate adventure or a romantic princess story. Perhaps they like stories about aliens, clever detectives, or magic and mystery. Maybe they only like stories that are true or from a time long ago. We all have our favourite stories. But maybe they’d like to have a go at writing their own?

If they do, you’ve come to the right place. With a mind bursting with stories just waiting to be told, this course will teach them how to get them out into the world.

Notebook and pen (or a computer if they prefer) at the ready, the Creative Writing for Kids Course will help your child on their way to becoming an author or poet. Jam-packed with tools and techniques, this course will help your child gain the skills and confidence needed to become a storyteller.

Getting them writing quickly and consistently, the course includes lots of warm-ups and practise exercises, and will have them writing lots of different stories and poems as they go on adventures with their characters. They can choose to write a new story each time, using the prompts and exercises to practise new skills or use the exercises to work towards a longer story if they feel more confident.

They’ll learn the lingo, practise their prose, and snag all the skills they need to be a wonderful writer. At the end of each module, assessments will make sure they know their stanzas from their similes. And by the end of the course, they will have built an impressive portfolio of writing and storytelling skills.

By studying this course, your child will:

  • Learn about storytelling and traditional tales
  • Explore how to construct stories, the elements of a story and the role illustration can play
  • Discover writing tools, styles, and how to write dialogue
  • Get writing, as they follow lots of warm-ups and practise exercises
  • Learn about poetry, including the forms, styles, and language techniques used
  • Take fun quiz assessments
  • Receive a certificate upon completion

Desc: I have done over 15 courses with CoE already and I can only recommend them. Friendly customer support, great topics, very alternative and unique courses you'll hardly find anywhere else. Also a huge selection of different interests, there is something for everyone. Great discount codes running at all times! What started as a way to cope with COVID has become a true passion for me. Thank you CoE!
