The Accomplished Writers

Creative Writing Club for Children and Teens

with Tolulope Popoola, Author and Writing Coach

 


Hello parents!

Does your child love writing? Is he or she always scribbling in their notebooks, or would rather read a book than watch TV? Does your child one day dream of writing a book and becoming an author? Then read on!

We are giving young aspiring authors a chance to start writing, honing their craft early and become authors. If you have a budding writer living with you, or you want to encourage a young person to explore and improve their creative writing skills, then this will be of great interest to you!

Writing is a skill that everyone, young or old needs. Written communication is a very important part of learning, and creativity is a lifelong attribute of successful people. Young scholars will greatly benefit from taking part in this creative writing club. Every week, they will gain confidence in their own creative abilities, be able to brainstorm different ideas on various topics,  improve their spelling, grammar and punctuation, and become creators of their own content, instead of just consumers.

They will work on writing both fiction and non-fiction, and become versatile at writing in many different genres. There will also be opportunities for reading, peer feedback and public speaking. At the end of each class, students will be encouraged to read their work to the class, and their peers will give them feedback. They are to take the feedback on board and use it to improve on future assignments.

At the end of each year, the best stories written by the young authors will be selected, and published in a book that each student will receive.


This creative writing club provides an opportunity for children to explore different techniques of writing fiction and non-fiction. The children will:

  • Improve their creativity and imagination through writing exercises and prompts
  • Improve their language and vocabulary
  • Experiment with new ideas through free writing
  • Improve their spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Enjoy writing based on child-friendly themes
  • Learn what elements make a good story and how to weave them together
  • Gain an awareness and appreciation of different writing styles
  • Learn how to read, discuss and give feedback on each other’s work
  • Improve their public speaking skills and boost their confidence
  • Have a chance to get their work published in a book!

Online Sessions

Great news! We now have an online version of the Creative Writing Club!

Creative Writing Club Online

In the past year, we have received quite a lot of feedback from interested parents who want their children to join our creative writing club, but cannot attend because of the location. We have now set up an online version so that everyone, no matter where you’re based, can be a member of our club! We welcome children from all over Lagos, all around Nigeria, even in the UK, US, Europe, Canada, Asia, etc!

The Online Club is at http://bit.ly/writingclub and it is hosted on the Teachable platform. You can log in every week to access the content such as videos, notes, workbooks and assignments.

If you’re interested in your child joining the online version of our club, please go over to the course page on Teachable. You can register now, and as soon as the page goes LIVE on the 20th of September 2017, you will be granted access to the materials. We look forward to welcoming new online members to our club! For any enquiries, please send an email to: writingclub@accomplishpress.com or call: +234 (0)809 111 3678. Thank you.
