WK101 Writing with Kids

Summer School Module - WK101 Writing with Kids

This optional module is designed to help you make the most of the summer holidays and fulfil your full writing potential. It will help you discover coping mechanisms for those long, hot, summer days where you wish to write and are faced with entertaining small ones from sun-up to sundown. This course will cover clever ideas for multi-tasking exercises, how to deal with the disappointment of not being able to write as well as several methods for remaining highly caffeinated. The skills introduced in this module can be transferred to other education breaks such as half term and Christmas.

What you will study:

In order to successfully complete this course you will need to allocate all your spare time which means no sleeping for the duration of the module. Energy bars are available, packed with all the nutrients you will need plus a delicious caffeine coating.

You will learn:

  • How to do everything one-handed so you can continue to write your manuscript wherever you are
  • How to function with sleep deprivation so you can entertain your children all day and write all night
  • How to enjoy cold food so you can sneak in five minutes of writing between feeding children and clearing up after them
  • How to go out in the real world and interact with other humans who don't exist in your book
  • Organisational tools to run multiple social lives at once so you don't forget important appointments and can make that scheduled online word sprint
  • How to cook up to five different meals for one sitting and still have an ounce of creativity left for writing later
  • Where to find the best activities for your children that don't involve one-to-one so you can write while they play
  • How to pick up your train of thought, hours after it was broken
  • How to write cohesively when using the backs of envelopes, your phone note function and crayon

You will need:

  • The ability to accept that you will get nothing done
  • Excellent memory skills and high levels of attention to detail
  • Easy-cook recipes
  • Cheap and cheerful child-friendly activities

Teaching and Assessment

This course is distance learning, to be completed at home with your writing materials and selected offspring. We recommend at least two children for successful completion of the course. There is no online tutor or support group for this course however you may find additional learners with a similar setup at your local park, soft play and other entertainment centres. Don't forget to visit your parental resources file as well sa the multiple books and websites available for extra credit study.

The skills gained on this course can be transferred to other self-employed businesses such as arts, crafts, fitness and many more.

We wish you the very best with your studies and look forward to welcoming you back for further modules in the future.
