Creative Writing for Kids & Teens.jpg

Kids & Teens

Young writers learn English through storytelling

KIDS & TEENS

We're passionate about getting kids and teens involved in creative writing. We do that in a number of ways, from our storytelling workshops at Elenion Preschool to creative writing 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 or Greek, 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 WORKSHOPS

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. Our creative writing workshops for kids and teens are offered throughout the year in English and Greek, and can be organized for schools, institutions or private groups.


STORY CRAFT JUNIOR

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

Interactive storytelling workshops in English and Greek for kids ages 5-8 using original, contemporary tales. For classes and private groups.
