Writing a blogpost

Saturday, 9 December 2017

What is blogging? And what sets it apart from other forms of creativity? What separates a blog from say, a newspaper article, is "voice". In this session, children will learn how to identify their target audience, write focused blog posts on themes given to them by the facilitator which will range from writing about themselves to current topics such as climate change, deforestation, and cultural heritage.

Memoir writing workshop

The word French word "memoir" comes from memory. In this workshop, the children will be using their memory to recall and recollect certain incidents and write about it. This workshop thus aims to engage children in innovative and collaborative storytelling through a series of prompts given to them by the facilitator. It helps them to push the boundaries of their imagination.
