writing for Kids

An Immersive Weekend Course

With Mohit Parikh

Writing is not just the art and craft of putting words on paper so that one may score high marks or impress an audience. It is also a means for exploring the unknown territories of one’s mind where many a world lie. From Spiderman to Chota Bheem, from Mahabharata to Harry Potter, entire universes are imagined and put down on paper so that others too can share them with us.

The aim of this four-session workshop is to introduce creative writing to students, to teach them how to brainstorm, develop an idea, give structure to their thoughts and write in a neat and confident way so that they and others can enjoy it.

The instructor will touch upon not just creative writing but other forms of writing too that directly or indirectly concern students: essay writing, journal entries and poetry, but with a focus on the creative aspect. Some fundamental approaches, techniques and illustrations will be discussed, and live exercises will be conducted with the help of writing prompts.

The participating students will also get an opportunity to submit their creative pieces for assessment by the instructor and getting personal feedbacks.
