CREATIVE WRITING FOR 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 workshop series for the 4-5-year-olds of Elenion Nursery School to workshops at local universities and schools, like European University Cyprus, the American Academy and the English School. We also organize Open Mic Nights at Prozak Kafeneio once a month. This is an ideal venue for teens and young adults to present their writing before a live audience.


INTRODUCING STORY CRAFT JUNIOR

Are you interested in learning how to write stories and are 12-16 years old? Check out our latest offering at Write CY: a creative writing course designed just for teens to explore short fiction across several genres. We call it Story Craft Junior.


COMIC BOOK WRITING & ILLUSTRATION FOR TEENS

Our 10-week courses in comic book scriptwriting and illustration are a fantastic way for teens to explore storytelling through a dynamic, visually-oriented medium. We run the writing and illustration courses at the same time so young writers have the chance to collaborate with aspiring artists on actual comic books.


STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS FOR CHILDREN

Kids ages 5-10 explore storytelling as an alternative to traditional English classes in this series of weekly Saturday morning workshops at Write CY.


GET INVOLVED

If you're a school, university, institution or creative space, or you're just a parent and you've got 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 short story writing, live storytelling and poetry that give kids the structure and supportive environment they need to harness their creativity.
