Writing for Children - Level 2

On our Writing for Children's Books Workshop - Level 2 you will have the chance to kickstart a full-length piece of writing for children, whether it’s a picture book or a middle grade novel. Our course covers approaches to writing for children of all ages.

Styles

Write for children of any age, in any genre

You will be encouraged to share your work in class and learn from one another. You will also receive friendly feedback throughout the course. Students must have a good level of basic written English, as the course won’t focus on grammar or vocabulary.

Our Approach

The skills acquired aren't just useful for aspiring authors; Creative Writing (including for Children) is a great skill to develop business and personal writing, along with communication skills and confidence. The course is based in central London and you will receive more individual and group feedback.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
