We’ve made some exciting new changes at Brain Bunny lately. This term, we’ve been offering private individual and small group creative writing lessons. I’ve had chance to meet some new budding young writers through these, and I’ve been very impressed with the work they’ve created during lessons.
If you’d like to know more about our private lessons, please see our creative writing classes page.
In the meantime, there are several exciting competitions and opportunities for young writers coming up, including A Fabulous Poetry Competition for Children in Years 3-8 and The Reading Superheroes Competition for students in Years 1-10. For more competitions and writing opportunities, please see our writing competitions and awards page.
Writing tip: writing scenes between characters is about more than just the dialogue. What people are doing, while they’re talking, can be just as important. Try writing a scene where two characters are arguing, without using any dialogue at all. Think about what the characters are doing, and how that shows how they feel about each other. When you’re finished, add the dialogue in, and see if you can make the actions and speech work together to create the scene.
