Overview

Are you interested in:

  • being immersed in a culture of writing
  • learning how to improve your writing skills and how to become a better and more critical reader
  • ways of thinking about writing that can be strong and purposeful and develop your creativity
  • being taught by a literary heavyweight and being surrounded by students whom have similar passions  that you are able to absorb from

This course is designed for students of all levels that have a passion for writing. By immersing students with similar interests and goals together students can learn to further their writing skills and explore their creativity. This course covers the main techniques of creative writing and is mainly workshop driven in small groups followed by classroom tested teaching techniques.

Academic content

Students will be exposed to various forms of writing, such as short fiction, poetry and drama. Students also experiment with writing these genres. The class is usually comprised of technique and style discussions, reading assignments and writing exercises. Students are introduced to the concept of a writing workshop, wherein they share pieces with peers in order to give and receive positive feedback.

This course encourages the developmental stages of creative work in a whole range of written forms and genres, and allows students to explore how writing is crafted in order to express individual visions.  The course will help students develop and extend their writing skills and creativity in fiction, poetry and screenwriting. It balances the teaching of various aspects of craft with an exploration of how personal preoccupations can be given their own voice and communicated effectively. This process of discovery will inevitably examine and refer to published examples, developing students' critical and analytical skills, in order to apply them to their own work.

Students will be asked to create a portfolio of their work done in workshops and classes during the two week course. This portfolio will be invaluable to show their abilities to their chosen University and / or client. Students will be required to create one 15-20 page short story or a series of short stories as well as participate in weekly writing exercises.

Creative writing field visit

Lite Regal has teamed up with literary societies to provide our young students with a visit to places of inspiration for writers. Visits will include trips to the Poet Library and the Poetry Café where our students will be able to engage in discussions as well as hear other students / public stories. 

For the Creative Writing Course (2017) Lite Regal has confirmed a visit to Royal Society of Literature. Students will be inspired with guest speakers and generate ideas during these field visits.

The medical course was not what I imagined, It was better than I expected. I went on the Medical as I would like to be a doctor one day, and this summer camp was recommended by a friend in Lebanon. However the course was vastly different to the basic science done at other places and was very intriguing and has also made me very passionate about a career in medical science. The tutor Rebecca was also very friendly and so easy to understand that it might as well be basic science. Thanks Rebecca!

The place was fantastic, teachers were very thorough with their explanations. I had engineering and my tutor Gao Wei was very energetic with the subject and had an infectious attitude, he was easy to keep up with and understand. I loved my engineering course.

Sports activities were great as the facilities and equipment available were very good and effective. The tasks set out were effective to either determine or effect a variable of the student, such as endurance or strength of a certain limb or muscle. The tasks set were easy to understand and were fun to complete. Overall these activities were very effective and worth while.

The summer course was excellent as I found out many things unknown to me at this course. Also the great activities done after the course for the day were very engaging and entertaining. The activity leader Mr Lucas was social and easy to get along with allowing for the other attenders to engage with each other if the activity required group work.

At first I was nervous to go to this place as I didn't know any of the teachers or any of the other attenders. However the English course I was set to do was very effective as teacher Doris was very kind and patient,that allowed me to get settled in and get engaged with the work. There were many scenarios where I was not confident or didn't know the answer and she was patient for me to try for the correct answer and if I didn't get the answer she would drop hints for me to use.
