Re: Creative writing classes for children from Sat 15 Sept

No, it's creative writing - mostly writing stories, with different themes each term, though sometimes scriptwriting rather than prose. Tutor Cate Sampson is a published children's author and very experienced at helping children develop their imagination and writing skills.

Hope that helps?
