Your children don’t like to write? Change their minds by signing them up for a new creative writing club launching in Welwyn Garden City this fall.

The Writing Den will be hosting after-school workshops on Wednesdays starting Nov. 2 at the Quaker Meeting House.

These will be from 4:15 p.m. to 5 p.m. for young people aged 6 to 8 and from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. for children aged 9 to 12.

The workshops will be led by a qualified teacher and children’s writer and will nurture creativity, build confidence and engage their imagination.

The club will also be hosting a Harry Potter-themed workshop at the WGC to give a little taster and attendees who sign up for the weekly workshops will receive a 50% off Potter event discount code halfway through.

The Harry Potter Workshop will take place on Monday 24 October from 9.30am-11.30am for £20 for children aged 6-12.

Tracy Bullock, who leads the workshops, said: “Parents often contact me because their child is reluctant to write. I want to change that. At The Writing Den, the focus is on giving children the freedom to play with language, building their confidence, and nurturing their unique writing voice.

Workshops are also being held at The Mill House in Hertford and the Seth Ward Community Center in Buntingford and at their new venue in Welwyn Garden City.

Tracy thinks it’s important to encourage children to love books. “Reading inspires writing. Both activities engage children’s imaginations, develop empathy and provide a safe form of self-expression. Through fun games and activities, I encourage children to become confident in putting pen to paper. Our motto is be bold, go wild with a pen,” she added.

Mum Andreea Nicoll, who has already enrolled her daughter in the workshops, said: “My daughter was never an avid writer, but that changed when she started The Writing Den. I don’t know what kind of magic you do, but she’s always so excited to come to the workshops and won’t stop writing until bedtime.
