This summer, the Dubai International Writers’ Centre hosted three sold out LendMeYourLiteracy workshops for children.
Open to students between the ages of 8 and 12, the workshops were conducted by Jenny Murray from online global educational platform, LendMeYourLiteracy.
The workshop on the first day, ‘How to Create Your Own Inspiration’, enabled the students to learn how to use everyday tools to inspire their writing.
The second day was all about poetry in the ‘Rhyme and Rhythm – Fun Ways to Write a Poem’ workshop. The students got to the heart of what poetry means to them and wrote some of their own pieces as well.
The final workshop was especially exciting as it dealt with two topics close to any child’s heart; ‘Choose Your Own Path – Comics or Short Stories’ gave the students a chance to write both forms of prose, before choosing their preferred piece to complete.
