Benefits of this course

  • By the time a child has thought of an idea, developed and crafted it into a story, a few things would have taken place: reading, organization and communication skills, vocabulary building and creative use of the imagination.

  • Writing also helps children to express themselves in a safe environment. In a world where many children still don’t have the opportunity to express their feelings, writing helps children to connect with their emotions, thus enhancing their mental health.
