What the classes include:

This series of classes cover a broad range of Creative Writing topics, everything from:
  • Planning plots
  • Story arcs
  • Character development and
  • World-building.


“A fantastic resource that should be available for all children from ethnic minority communities. English written is always difficult for many children to grasp and additional support from a skilled and professional teacher like Safina should be promoted at all levels! My daughter has loved every class her enthusiasm in writing as excelled and her thoughts and writing skills have improved in the short time she attended – please continue these classes!”


“I found these workshops very useful and helpful not only for myself but also for my children. These workshops have given me confidence and I hope to continue my journey in writing. It would not be possible without Safina, she is a great teacher indeed. Thank you so much”


“Safina has encouraged me so much. She has helped me to acknowledge that I have writing potential and I’m very grateful! I have learned the correct techniques and understand how to plot my stories and create characters now. I have really enjoyed the sessions. Thanks so much for the learning opportunity!”


“A great course. Clear and concise. Trainer had a wonderful positive attitude. Look forward to attending a future course. I learnt so much and am inspired to write and express myself. I can now see so many hidden depths to writing and the beauty it brings. Thank you so much.”


“My son absolutely loved the course and was inspired to write. The course was helpful with his understanding for structuring stories and I’m sure will help with homework. I hope there is further opportunity to follow it through with further classes. Thank you so much Safina.”
