Weekend Classes for Young Writers

You asked, we listened!

We are so excited to introduce our Weekly Creative Writing Workshops by Mariam Tareen, which will run every Saturday throughout the school year. You can choose to enrol your child for one month, two months or three months at a time.

From learning new words to how to write better sentences, paragraphs, stories and essays, week after week your children will work at improving their writing skills and emerge better, more confident writers in a bright and supportive environment.

All workshops are designed and conducted by Mariam Tareen, the founder of The Writing Room. Mariam has an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, University of London (2013) and has been teaching writers of all ages for several years. You can e-mail her at mariam.tareen@thewritingroom.co

Our Teaching Philosophy

Our teaching philosophy is simple (and grounded in research): to help children become better writers, we teach them how to read well, instilling in them an appreciation of what good writing looks like, and a desire to emulate it in their own work.

This is the starting point for all our classes, whether we are learning how to create compelling characters, vivid settings, or how to write clear and organised essays in which ideas both flow and fit together.

Every class makes time for close reading, writing and rewriting, so that students are continually learning, practicing, and improving their writing skills.

We always try to keep our class environment bright and light, a place where young writers feel safe, valued and encouraged to do their best work. We want our classes to be different from school, a place where success is not measured by anxious competition and exam results, but in the joy and pride that comes from learning, working and becoming better at your work.
