Writing Clinics

This year the English Language department invited 2 authors. One of  them is Mr Ken Kwek, an award-winning filmmaker and the author of “Timothy and the Phubbers” to conduct a writing clinic for our P5 and P6 pupils who aspire to be authors. Ken Kwek revealed the key to creating a good story with examples from popular children’s films and his experiences as a filmmaker. Students learnt a simple framework to create stories of their own, as well as the value of writing as a tool for understanding themselves and the world around them.

The other author is Ms Felicia Low-Jimenez. She is one half of A.J. Low, the writing team behind the Sherlock Sam children’s book series. She has been working with books her entire career, previously as a fiction merchandiser and now as the publisher at Difference Engine, a new independent comics publishing house. She guided students on how to create a superhero or a super villain.
