Creative Writing Masterclass

StoryBoard Masterclasses, run by professional authors, provide ongoing, regular sessions in which young writers develop and hone their writing skills throughout the term. The free Masterclasses run in the evenings. During the 90-minute workshops participants explore a diversity of writing forms and genres. They free-write, plan, execute, edit and revise their work, often with the aim of bringing a singular idea from concept to completion. In some cases, the final pieces are published as an Anthology. Suitable for 8-13 years.
