Writing tuition and book publishing workshops

Creative writing sessions where stories are told
by children for children.

Children come together in small groups to work with Zoe Antoniades, a specialist teacher and writer. Imaginative and exciting ideas are developed together through the process of shared writing, resulting in collections of short stories which are published professionally through Matador press.

These stories are for children by children; they contain first-hand concepts that children want to read about because children have chosen to write them. With a skilled teacher to guide them, the children are inspired to come up with their own ideas, then helped to shape, structure, organise and develop them so that they evolve into more professional pieces. The result of such an approach is a unique style, a hybrid product of adult and child’s voice. The stories possess the spirit and originality of a child’s creative ideas, but with the polish and flair of an experienced writer.

The lovely things people say.

An outstanding teacher. In a music lesson, the teacher’s enthusiasm and energy were transmitted to the pupils who participated fully and enjoyed the lesson immensely. They sang tunefully and made excellent progress.

Zoe is a very talented teacher who develops an excellent rapport with the pupils. Zoe plans her lessons to be dynamic and stretching for the different levels of attainment of the pupils. Her enthusiasm is reflected in the enthusiasm shown by the pupils and results in a very high standard of work which the pupils deliver. Zoe has gained a great deal of respect from parents who recognise the commitment and effort she puts in and the achievements of the pupils. Zoe gives unstintingly of her time and effort to the job of teaching and has been a source of energy and ideas.

High expectations and excellent subject knowledge which engaged the children’s interest and moved the learning on. Very clear explanations and a really well organised session. Very good behaviour management – children remained focused throughout the session and listened really well.
