Chelsea Young Writers Club | Creative Writing Courses for Children

We teach Creative Writing and Public Speaking skills to children. Our courses and workshops are led by award-winning children’s writers and coaches in London.

Our authors and instructors have proven ability to inspire and enhance children’s creative writing, presentation, and communication skills. What better way can there be to develop creative skills than from those who are experts in the craft?

Our creative writing workshops for children are unique, with outlines specifically tailored by our authors in residence team. Course outlines are exclusive to Chelsea Young Writers and structured to be inspiring for both evolving and more developed young writers.

We run both after school and holiday courses, in different venues in central London. After School clubs run according to school term calendar and holiday workshops are held throughout the year, during all half term breaks and over the Christmas, Easter, Summer holidays.

We develop a specific theme for each term and explore a different topic every week. Next Autumn Term 2016 we will be inspired by “Ancient Rome” theme! All workshops are structured accordingly so that members can get the most out of their creative writing time. The programme is designed to encourage individual creative thinking and allow children to develop their ideas throughout the term.

Creative writing testimonials

Creative writing holiday  workshops are written and curated by a host children’s author. Each workshop runs for three hours a day, with a fifteen minute break. During the session, the group will perform a series of small exercises leading up to writing a short story.



Workshops are small in size and always about having fun and exploring new ideas, whilst developing creative skills. One thing parents and children can be sure of with Chelsea Young Writers is that it will always be exciting, enriching and, in the widest possible sense, educational, too. But, most of all, it will be really good fun!
