Creative Writing for Kids & Teens

An alternative way for kids to practice English and learn writing and storytelling skills

 

EXPLORE STORYTELLING

We're passionate about getting kids and teens involved in creative writing. We do that in a number of ways, from our storytelling workshop series at Elenion Preschool to workshops at local festivals, schools and universities, like European University Cyprus, the American Academy, the English School and King Richard School in Larnaca. 

If you're a school, university, institution, creative space or parent with a group of kids or teens of five or more who want to explore creative writing in English, get in touch. We organize weekday and weekend group workshops in creative writing and storytelling that give kids the structure and supportive environment they need to harness their creativity.

Write CY storytellers Elenitsa Georgiou, Stavrinos Kyriakou, Chris Demetriou and Max Sheridan perform stories and teach storytelling at Nicosia Book Fest 2017.


CREATIVE WRITING SUMMER CAMP

Writing stories helps kids and teens make the meaningful connections with language that normal English classes can’t. Kids also enjoy themselves more and prepare themselves to be better readers and writers later in life. In this 4-week creative writing camp kids and teens will learn how to put together plots, build compelling characters and write engaging descriptions as we explore our literary voices in a number of different styles.


STORY CRAFT JUNIOR

Are you interested in learning how to write stories and are 12-16 years old? Story Craft Junior is a 6-week creative writing course designed just for teens to explore short fiction across several genres.


COMIC BOOK WRITING FOR TEENS

Our 8-week course in comic book scriptwriting is a fantastic way for teens to explore storytelling through a dynamic, visually-oriented medium. Illustration courses running at The Art Hub give young writers the chance to collaborate with aspiring artists on actual comic books.


KIDS TELL STORIES

Are you a parent looking for an alternative and creative way for your child to practice English and learn storytelling skills? Write CY organizes interactive storytelling workshops in English for kids ages 5-8 using original, contemporary tales.
