In our WRITE ON saturdayS classes we encourage students to explore new genres and forms, share work with their peers, and develop a self-conFIdent approach to their writing.

Our WRITE ON Saturday Classes, based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, are for writers ages 7 to 19 who love to write. Classes are small and are led by tutors who are experienced writers and specialist teachers.

 

We are a supportive and welcoming community of writers.

 

Programmes suited to the age and ability level of each group provide an enjoyable variety of writing challenges as well as the chance for writers to pursue their own projects.

 

Students are provided with great writing prompts, 1:1 mentoring and redrafting support – with the motivation of possible publication in Write On Magazine.

Please note: at this stage we are not offering a remedial English programme. 

NEW for 2022: To ensure access to a community of writers, we will also be offering WRITE ON SATURDAY ONLINE classes for writers over 12 years old. This means you can join us from around the country and experience what Write On has to offer.  FIND OUT MORE HERE

WHAT OUR YOUNG WRITERS SAY

“Every week, I get to spend time with like-minded people. School for Young Writers is a place where you can express yourself through both your writing and the discussion that follows, where there is no fear of judgement.”

XAVIER, 16

“I love the variety of topics and themes, all the nice people you meet, and all the teachers are super nice. It has improved my writing skills immensely”
ISLA, 14
