The Whole Story is a project-based course that provides a wonderful opportunity for keen teen writers to spend consecutive days honing their writing skills – all under the expert eye of a creative writing mentor. Whether you are is a novelist in the making, or you have brilliant story and character ideas but can’t yet get much down on paper, this course has been designed to equip you with strategies to become more confident and inspired writers. We aim to spark your imaginations and enthuse you with a love for writing and reading: writing is, after all, fundamentally great fun!
On The Whole Story course, we teach students how to effectively structure a story based on a classic literary genre, such as mystery, adventure or fantasy fiction. Our writing resources, designed by our in-house professional writers, provide a narrative framework from which the students craft their stories. In a small group setting that allows students to focus and interact constructively, an experienced writing tutor will provide guidance, advice and individual feedback to each student. At the end of the course, you will receive a detailed written feedback highlighting their strengths, progress made and suggested areas for improvement.
