Community Classes

Ink Wing Academy is creative outlet in the community for children and adults who would like to have opportunities to write and use their imaginations, unlocking their creativity.

 

Community projects embrace hands on projects planned around a particular group's needs and wishes.

Creative Writing Classes

Magical, curious and creative projects for children.

 

Setting and character description are explored through discussion, text and by experiencing them first hand by making it. This, in turn, leads to engaging writing or storytelling through poetry, story writing, descriptive writing and journalism. This is achieved creatively, including the use of film, animation, drama and art.

 

It’s all about making it fun! 

Explore. Believe in yourself. Write!

Community Groups

Many of these projects embrace Community festivals or themes such as Junior Citizenship, Identity, Well-Being or Cultural

Diversity.

Examples include:


A Door to Another World

 

World Poetry Day

 

My Story, My Chair 

 

Twisted...It’s Wicked!

Halloween Storytelling with Madame Zelda

 

Summer Fun - Wizarding Worlds

 

It’s Magic, You’re Magic

 

Spiderwick: NEW 5-week Creative Writing Project

 

 

 

 

 

To celebrate coming back to create face-to-face, we have created this very special writing project full of creative and imaginative opportunities and plenty of exploration through film, nature and text.

Have you ever wished to be able to see through the veil of mischief and mayhem to see the little folk and creatures that only live in the realms of folklore & fantasy?

 

Inspired by the Spiderwick Chronicles, join IWA to create a creative adventure story set in a magical house with mystery and enchantment in its walls, waiting to be uncovered. Our five week project includes creative writing, thinking skills and model making magical equipment, concluding with children decorating their own fantasy houses with words to take home along with their individual workbooks.

Our Autumn term at Hotel Creep was a huge success! Many of our young writers got their completed stories published in an online Digital Book 'The Gathering' as part of Anne Mc Master's Wick Words for Derry Halloween.

 

Well done to each and ever writer - you were WICKED to work with!

 

TESTIMONIALS

Fantastic experience for any child. Recent workshop was magical! My little girl was excited to go every week and had so much to tell me after each session. Really encouraged creative thinking, independent writing, language development and much more. Highly recommend!
