Writing is similar to the opening of a chess game: the pieces must be put in place at the start. The key to successful stories and descriptions lies in structure and planning. Both of these are at the heart of what we do in creative writing. Equally popular with boys and girls each workshop is different and offers new and exciting themes so we are thrilled to see children returning again and again to these hugely popular workshops.

By writing a piece each day and talking it through whilst still fresh, the children can immediately see what they have done well and how to improve their work. The groups are small and age-appropriate allowing us to build an understanding of how to write stories based on our “Six Secrets for Success.”
We focus on what is required by schools at the various age levels, but we also want to engender a sense of daily achievement and enjoyment. We know the talent is there, we just help to open the box.
"Our son did the Creative Writing Course with Yellowbird and after just a week, we saw a huge improvement in his story writing skills."
The teacher is amazing!
“Our daughter did the writing week this Easter. She did not want to go at first. It went so well that now she loves writing and she said that the class really makes her enjoy writing. I can’t believe how much she wrote and learnt in only one week. The teacher is amazing. Well done and we will do it again. Thank you so much.”

Practical skills and strategy.
“It only took a day with the irrepressible Mr Viv for my daughter to be hooked. She walked out of the workshop exclaiming, "I LOVE writing!" I nearly fell over. This same child had loathed writing for most of her school career. We are extremely pleased with not only her newfound love of writing but also the practical skills and strategy she can now take back to school with her. Thank you, Yellowbird!”
