January is all very well but September has always felt like a much more exciting New Year to me. Probably because of the stationery. So what better reason to buy some super sharp new pencils and… start a Creative Writing Club?
If your school doesn’t have one already, there are SO many good reasons for starting one.
- It’s hugely beneficial educationally and psychologically to be creative. You’ll be giving your students such an important gift.
- It’s also an amazingly relaxing, heart-warming, and bonding experience just to sit in a room with a bunch of people quietly putting their thoughts on paper. And when they share those thoughts with you it’s honestly such a privilege and a joy.
- It’s SO much fun! Teenagers have incredible imaginations and ideas. My group inspire me constantly by coming up with stuff I could never have thought of. My mind is regularly blown.
- You get tea and cake!
- You get to hang out in the library after school like the cool kids in The Breakfast Club.
- It doesn’t cost a thing!
- It’s super easy!
