Creative writers start here!

Malachi is 11 years old and a member of our Creative Writing course. We wanted to showcase his amazing work, so he has written a blog!

Malachi at Explore Learning

“I have been going to Creative Writing at Explore Learning Leicester for around six months now, the first week we learnt about real life and comic superheroes. Creative writing has improved my vocabulary and enhanced my story writing capabilities. The superhero topic was a wonderful topic to start on; real life superheroes came in including a local fireman and a remarkable nurse. My Creative Writing tutor, Phoebe, always finds a way to make the sessions enjoyable.

Explore Learning always finds new ways to inspire me with real life influences, to add more description and emotion in my work, so that the reader can engage more with the content and characters. In school, my writing has improved leaps and bounds since joining Creative Writing. Explore Learning has helped me on my learning journey from Year 3 to Year 6. When I joined Explore Learning I wanted to push myself to my full potential and achieve the best I can at school.

I love coming to Explore Learning because it can teach me new skills that I can use in different ways in the outside world. Every time I come into the centre I am excited to see if any of my friends are there. After my session I love playing games in surf club with other people that come to the centre.”
