CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS
(Suitable for Years 5 - 11, ages 9 - 18)
M. G. Leonard offers a creative writing workshop (or series of workshops) devised to enable participants to discover the power of storytelling, cultivate research skills, challenge their own views, develop empathy, consider the impact of a story on the reader, and encourage all students to express themselves with words.
Workshops are active, using theatre games and a variety of methods to develop a story, with focused quiet periods of writing.
A series of workshops might include a session on story structure, developing character and a session on editing.
A series of workshops would always be devised in consultation with the teacher.
