Spring 2021: Jan 5-June 19
During the school term, we offer classes on a weekly basis. Given the current situation, all of our classes will begin online, with the class size limited to 6 students. Some sections will revert to face-to-face classes when the situation allows (marked on the booking site as “Location: ECP Centre in Central”), while others will be completely online (“Location: ECP Online”).
Term-long Creative Writing and Book Publishing Workshops will run for 13-14 sessions, with some starting in early January, although additional sections may be added to begin after Chinese New Year. Afterwards, we will have short skill-building or publishing workshops for those who want to continue with their regular writing classes through June.
ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS: From our experience, students in our online creative writing and publishing workshops benefit greatly from 30-min one-on-one sessions with the teacher to support the revising process because of the shortened class time online. These one-on-one sessions will be scheduled individually with the teacher and charged separately ($350/class). The frequency of the one-on-one sessions will vary based on age:
- Ages 6-8: up to 5 per term (once every 2-3 weeks)
- Ages 8-10: 4 per term (once every 3 weeks)
- Ages 10+: 3 per term (once every 4 weeks)
The one-on-one sessions will continue for as long as the course runs online. For classes that resume the in-person format of 1.5 hours/class, the teacher will conference with the students within the longer group sessions.
