Develop your Creativity and Writing Skills

Saturday, 24 September 2016 Chennai

Roald Dahl has a humorous writing style for children. He is very creative, using unique adjectives in his descriptive writing. He uses specific names and figures of speech which compliments the different character in his or her personality and features. He also creates characters that are enjoyable and humorous:

Creativity is the freest form of self-expression. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without judgment. Developing creativity and writing skills in young people allows for development of great tools that aid children throughout their schooling years and into adulthood. 

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s works, children will write a story on ‘What did you dream last night…..’
