Weekly Workshops

Weekly Workshops for ages 8 to 18 are supported by: Hagley Community College

Saturday mornings

Saturday workshops are held in J Block at Hagley Community College, Christchurch, during school terms from 10am to noon.

J Block is the group of buildings immediately to your right as you enter the college car par via the Waller Terrace entrance. In the busy netball season when parking is charged for, parents may drop their children outside the gate, because it is a very short and safe walk to the classrooms we use.

The purpose of the workshops

Classes are small (no more than ten in a group), and are led by tutors who are experienced writers and specialist teachers.

Programmes suited to the age and ability level of each group provide an enjoyable variety of writing challenges as well as the chance for motivated writers to pursue their own projects.

We encourage students to explore new genres and forms, share work with their peers, and develop a self-confident approach to their writing.
