Creative Writing

Introducing TICE Creative Writing. Here you can find out more about our national award-winning TICE programme and also Creative Writing Taster Workshops. || TICE Creative Writing explores avenues of journalism, short stories, copy writing, marketing, editorial, screenwriting and communication.

The TICE Programme

Join secondary schools around the North East region that participate in the annual TICE programme. The programme consists of all elements - Insight, Explore and Create Stages with a celebratory 'TICE Final Show' at the end of the academic year.

Taster Writing Workshops

If your school cannot participate in the TICE programme (Insight, ExploreCreate Stages & TICE Final Show) for whatever reason or your school would like to sample another area alongside the programme then please view the Writing Taster Workshops below.

1. Insight into Writing

This one-day workshop takes place in school and is an introduction to the creative writing industry. This involves the scope of the creative sector, career progression and fundamental creative business knowledge.

2. Explore Writing

Explore workshops run over a period of two days. This involves taking students out of school and immersing them into creative writing. Students have the chance to participate in ‘behind the scenes’ tours, speak with creative entrepreneurs, freelancers and business professionals. We look into further and higher educational courses and look at key skills the writing professions look for.

3. Create in Writing

'Create in Writing' are 3 day workshops whereby schools can select project of their choice. Students will gain further insight into a specific area of creative writing. Each project will involve guest speakers, tours, skills development and a completed piece of individual or group work.
