Through our creative writing workshops, we provide a high energy, fun and nurturing environment for children to explore their imagination and express themselves in written form. Our workshop structure combine several years of experience as teachers, parents and authors to offer quality and stimulating workshops for your children. We keep our range of writing activities interesting and varied so that children keep coming back term after term!
We partner with local schools and organisations to instil and develop a genuine love of writing in children, which we hope will stay with them for life. We carefully design our lesson plans around themes that would engage and intrigue children. We incorporate a range of learning styles to keep the children engaged. The link below provides some examples of what we cover in our workshops - please click the green icon below to find out moreLearn More
We have been using Writing Champions as an after school club this half term and are extremely impressed. The children are really enjoying the club and the bubbling noise of excitement can be heard across the school! It is lovely to see so many children engaged in creative writing. We will definitely be using Writing Champions in the future."Ms Poynter, Literacy LeadScotts Park Primary School
Taylor absolutely loves to write, especially short stories and your classes have helped enhance her vocabulary and creativity. Your classes have given her the confidence to share her short stories with family and friends, whereas before she felt her work wasn’t good enough. We all agree her expression, use of similes and content have greatly improved and it is a pleasure to read her work."KellyRed Hill school
As a parent I have been really impressed by the careful planning and structured approach taken to the sessions. An outline of what will be covered in class is shared with parents at the beginning of term which is very helpful. The tutors are well engaged and always at hand to provide feedback at the end of the sessions. I also liked the certificate (or bookmark!) of achievement given to the children at the end of the term which makes them proud of the work they have done and the new skills learnt."La Fontaine School
My son was a reluctant writer and reluctant reader before attending the creative writing sessions. After a term at Writing Champions, I have seen his interest in reading improve. He has even spontaneously picked up a pen and paper to write his own stories!"Mrs RanaLa Fontaine School
My child really enjoys Writing Champions. She comes home enthusiastic about the sessions and having produced some wonderfully imaginative stories in various styles. I can really see the progress she is making and confidence growing. I also appreciate the easy and efficient online booking system and the clear communications from Writing Champions."FayLa Fontaine School
Writing Champions have been running a creative writing club at our school now for two terms and it has been a very positive experience for all involved. The club is well organised and run by engaging staff members. The school has not had to be involved with any of the club admin and can fully rely on the team to ensure that it runs smoothly each week. The children who have attended so far have been excited about attending the club and full of praise for Miles who runs our sessions. It has been lovely to see some of our less confident writers have the opportunity to express themselves through their creative writing and expand upon their own ideas week by week."Ms Harman, Literacy leadSt Nicholas School
I really liked the sessions. The teacher was nice and supportive and was one of the best I ever had. The lessons were fun and imaginative. One of the best clubs I've ever been to."Eva, Year 5John Ball Primary School
