Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.

Look no further for a Dramatically Different creative writing workshop for your child. At Julia Gabriel Centre, the development of creative writing skills through our carefully structured workshops keeps students interested in the lesson and eager to record their own stories. Students move progressively towards building confidence in writing creatively.
 
Our online workshops will entail both daily live sessions via Zoom with additional online materials and activities which can be accessed during and after the workshops. Our creative writing workshops are designed to suit and cater to children from 7 to 12 years old.
