Creative Writing Programme

The Confident Writer

Storytelling skills and creativity are the two most prized assets in this present day and age. The ability to communicate clearly and engagingly is a transferable skill highly-valued in school and workplace.

Our systematic writing program aims to hone the students’ creative writing skills and instill their passion for writing. Students are exposed to a wide array of text types across the three genres: narrative texts, poetry and non-fiction. The courses are created and taught by teachers from top HK, UK and US universities, including Oxbridge and Ivy League schools.

Join us to write an intriguing acrostic poem, create your own riveting fairytale, or even build a fantasy world full of wizards and witches.
