Creative writing is something that every child has tried with varying success. But every parent who's serious about sharpening their child's writing knows what it takes to hone the skill. If you're not sure where to start with their creative writing journey, we recommend that you check out module 2 of our six-week online course.

Specially designed for 11 to 17-year olds, the course contains exciting lessons on the strategies behind creative writing, blog writing, poetry, travelogues, writing interview articles, screenwriting and creating characters. Your child will gain insights into how to make their writing stand out. Next batch starts on 20 August.

Kids will also get to analyse popular pieces from renowned writers and build a writer’s portfolio comprising their own writing.  In interactive classes, they will learn to implement writing techniques, take part in discussions and provide peer feedback, all of which will help them master their writing. 

Course fee: INR 6,500 per participant.
