WRITE TURN AHEAD

WHAT IS WRITE TURN AHEAD?

Do you have a budding author in your midst? If the answer is yes, you're in the right place. If the answer is no, you're definitely in the right place!

At WRITE TURN AHEAD we love nothing more than...you guessed it - writing. Nurturing a child who spends his/her free time filling notebooks with stories or screenplays is magical. But so is turning a self-professed "book hater" into an avid writer. (We also firmly believe that there's no such thing as a child who hates to read; they just haven't found the right book yet.) Using an engaged and interdisciplinary approach in an informal workshop setting, we work to foster a love of writing in all students. By focusing first on their love of storytelling - ask any child to recount his/her favorite film and you'll see this firsthand - we help students to turn the stories they love to tell into stories they're able - and eager - to write.

We use a wide range of programme materials that are suited to beginners as well as more advanced young writers. Our focus is absolutely on making writing fun - with a stealthy side of language skills, critical reading and constructive peer review. (We like to go 007 in matters of things like editing/revision and the Punctuation Police have been known to make a guest appearance.)

WRITE TURN AHEAD is based in Chester, UK. Find out more about our KS2 introductory workshop, DISCOVER YOUR VOICE.
