Creative Writing Programme
This is a non-structured programme that can be continued for as long as one wants to hone one’s acumen to pen thoughts. It is for the child, the teenager, and even the grown-ups at every level from Grade V till Grade VII and even beyond.
Writing comes naturally to voracious readers. Henceforth, this module inculcates the interest to read better – write better – speak better using the fine nuances of the English language.
Oft-ignored and rarely appreciated, Creative writing skills last an entire writing lifetime. It is a dive into the great ocean of words, idioms, phrases, and clauses – keeping you afloat on the correct usage of punctuation and teaching you to swim past clichés and display protean strokes of similes and metaphors. Your life jacket undoubtedly is correct grammar.
