Fall 2021 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

Face-to-face classes:

The health and safety of our community is the most important to us, so we will maintain our COVID precautions for in-person classes at the centre with temperature checks, partitions and health declarations for all students. In-person class size will be limited to a maximum five students.

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 periodic one-on-one sessions for each student so teachers can provide additional support on the revision process. The 30-min one-on-one sessions are charged at $350/session on an as-needed basis, but typically 2-4 times per term.
