Taster Writing Workshops
1. Insight into Writing
This one-day workshop takes place in school and is an introduction to the creative writing industry. This involves the scope of the creative sector, career progression and fundamental creative business knowledge.
2. Explore Writing
Explore workshops run over a period of two days. This involves taking students out of school and immersing them into creative writing. Students have the chance to participate in ‘behind the scenes’ tours, speak with creative entrepreneurs, freelancers and business professionals. We look into further and higher educational courses and look at key skills the writing professions look for.
3. Create in Writing
'Create in Writing' are 3 day workshops whereby schools can select project of their choice. Students will gain further insight into a specific area of creative writing. Each project will involve guest speakers, tours, skills development and a completed piece of individual or group work.
