At Creative Write-it, our Story Writing Clubs and Writing Mentorships give our young writers the freedom to write creatively. School often requires them to write to specific prompts, write within certain time limits, or to write in styles that don't excite them. This can be a great challenge, but there is so much more fun to be had with creative writing than our school curriculums have space for. A lack of balance can lead them to think that writing is 'boring' and 'hard'. Here at Creative Write-it, we aim to provide this balance by working with our young writers and allowing them the opportunity to write what inspires them.
Here’s how we inspire our young writers:
We get to know each individual
We get to know each individual and learn what type of style and genre they like writing in, what their strengths are, and what areas we can help them improve on. This allows us to tailor our teaching style to each individual and allows them to get the most out of the program.
We follow their lead
We let our students choose the writing style they’d like to write in, whether it be a short story, a longer story, or a poem. We let them take the lead, and we work with them. This allows us to build a strong relationship with each individual.
We adapt the workshop plan
Our workshop plans are designed to be flexible, as this allows us to adapt our plans to suit each individual. We understand everyone is unique and learns in a different way, so we tailor our programs to suit their needs and interests.
We challenge them
Although we believe in letting our students write what inspires them, we also believe in challenging them. By challenging their creativity and their way of thinking, this allows them to discover new possibilities and to grow as writers.
