Workshop Objectives

In this workshop, I aim to cover the fundamentals of writing for children and young adults. The participants will be exposed to various issues regarding the techniques and art of creative writing.

Workshop overview

Participants will undergo a multitude of writing exercises, and will be exposed to a number of children’s books to be discussed and evaluated. Each participant will work on his/her writings individually under my supervision, the goal being to come out of the workshop with a clear idea for a story to be developed later, based on the acquired knowledge at the workshop.

Follow up sessions at a later stage will help in consolidating the acquired knowledge and in getting the participants’ stories to be reviewed, edited, and eventually published.
