Regular Term Weekly Writing Workshops

During the school term, we offer classes on a weekly basis, in-person at our centre and international school partners, and online. Workshop topics change from term to term so that students can explore different genres and develop and apply new skills and techniques.

  • Term-long writing workshops run for 12-14 sessions in Fall (Sept-Dec) and 14-20 weeks in Spring (Jan-June)
  • Short writing workshops run for 6-8 sessions with different start times over the course of the year

Spring 2023 Creative Writing Workshops

Spring 2023 weekly writing workshops will begin in January and run for 13-15 sessions until April/May. Enrolment will open on 10 Dec. Contact us by WhatsApp to enroll!

Publishing Fee

Since the founding of ECP in 2008, we have been committed to publishing books written by young writers — to provide a very purposeful and concrete goal for our students, and because we fervently believe their ideas and stories are worth sharing! 

At the same time, much work happens behind-the-scenes to bring these books to life and to produce the quality of books that our students and parents know and love. From 2023, there will be a publishing fee of $400 for all term-long publishing workshops and $200 for all short publishing workshops.

Online workshops:

Our online writing workshops will be conducted in LIVE sessions so our teachers can provide support and guidance to every student, and students can collaborate and discuss ideas with peers. Depending on the age group, students complete the writing by handwriting on printed worksheets or typing on Google Docs where teachers can monitor and give immediate feedback. The maximum class size for online classes is 6 students.

The online creative writing and publishing workshops for age 6-14 will have one-on-one sessions for each student over the term so that teachers can provide additional support on the revision process. One-on-one sessions will be in designated weeks, and teachers will send parents a calendar to book a time slot that suits their schedule. All students enrolled in online workshops are required to attend 3 one-on-one sessions per term.
