We include Writing Homework as part of all our Study Groups. As you develop in our Study Group, your strength as a writer will increase.

Creative Writing has many benefits. It has been scientifically proven that well-developed reading skills are linked to enhanced creative abilities. The creative process between ‘brainstorming’ (planning a story) and ‘creative writing’ (writing a new and creative literary text) suggests an association between verbal thinking and the process of creating a coherent story concept. As a result, Creative Writing activates patterns in the brain associated with handwriting, language processing, and cognitive areas. Our Study Groups also lead to community bonds and supportive endeavours.
Initially we do not over-worry about incorrect spellings and grammar. The Study Groups with TWS, aim to unlock each writer’s potential and that can begin with free-writing – which leads on to trusted techniques of self-correction developed over time. Many adults arrive at TWS with the idea the Study Groups resemble school classes. Once this is removed, the writers begin to develop, allowing their own creative writing style to emerge.
