WELCOME TO INKHEAD

We have been running creative writing workshops and clubs in schools and libraries for the past decade. We use a workshop approach to show and encourage children age 7 to 14 to write the stories they want to write.  This involves showing them how to develop believable characters; plot a story; use the setting in a dynamic way and pick the “right” words, similes, and metaphors to describe both characters and setting.

Our tutors are all writers who have studied creative writing and are writing now. We understand the process of trying to express what is in your imagination through the written word. Experienced tutors, workshop leaders and teachers, we enjoy the creative interaction with the children who come on our courses.

Inkhead offers group tuition, one to one tuition and story critiquing as well as regular clubs and holiday courses. We can help your children develop their writing for the 7+ and 11+ but we mainly want to inspire them to fall in love with the power and wonder of writing.

NEW writing workshop at the Punk Me Up Cafe in East Dulwich.

From 9am to 10am every Saturday (starting on 14th September and finishing on 19th October)

If you want to book now, please email Louise or phone 07943 514408. The first session is FREE. Cost for the remaining sessions is £70.

Younger writers experience with Inkhead.
