Is an 8 session Creative Writing workshop where children can exercise their creative faculties, indulge their love for reading and writing, and explore their own writing skills across different genres in Poetry, Fiction and Non-Fiction- from creating unique characters, understanding importance of setting and plot in fiction, to exploring the genre of play-writing where you give characters dialogues, to using rhyme while creating poetry, exploring world-building through adventure/fantasy writing, the workshop has a wide range of exposure and fun!

Over the course of this workshop, children will gain exposure to a wide range of literature, discover new forms of story writing, and realize their own writing potential under the guidance of our faculty.
