From that glorious "lightbulb moment" of finding an idea through to developing characters, setting and plot and finally to editing the story to be the best it can be.
Your child will also receive handy “printables”, bonus exercises and be cheered on every step of the way by a member of AWC’s Yay Team!

With this collection of ingredients, they will have the steps and the skills to be able to continue to create stories and write with more structure and impact in both their school work and personal endeavours. These are helpful exercises which will make learning faster and more fun.
Simply completing the adventure is an amazing achievement – and the glowing treasure at the end of the quest is a lifelong love of writing! The course also offers a series of OPTIONAL EXERCISES for those children who require additional creative stimulation.
) Also, at the END of the course, they will receive feedback from Allison Tait on their submitted 800-word story – via a personal video message, just for them!
Why can't Allison provide feedback after every module?
The Creative Writing Quest consists of 12 online modules which your child logs in and completes at their own pace (we recommend one a week, but it's up to you – you have a full year to complete them all).
As well as a video from Allison, each module will include practical exercises and a story challenge, with a larger story challenge at the end.
