This course is ideal for beginners who want to write fiction for children of all ages and also also for those who have started to write their books and wish to develop their writing skills further. 
Topics to be covered: 
• Different types of Writing for Children – genre/age groups 
• Plot and structure 
• Themes. 
• Writing picture books
• Writing chapter books 
• Developing characters 
• Opening and first pages

The weekend course is informal and fun - go home with an idea for a picture book and an idea for a chapter book for older children. Write in a supportive atmosphere, discuss your ideas, how to develop them and where to pitch them. 
Please let your group know about our weekend Creative Writing Courses. Every effort is made to keep the fees at cost and offering you the convenience of paying by instalments.
The emphasis is on ‘Relax & Write’ - Groups are kept small so that you can benefit from the ‘Relax & Write’ writing experience. The venue is an ideal place for writers, meeting  other writers and enjoying the beautiful gardens. A Programme and Badge is handed out on arrival. Free Parking available.
