About the Course

 

a) STARBRIGHT is an extensive writing course that creates confident and effective writers. We believe that writing can and should be more than just putting pen to paper. It is about critical thinking. About connecting with the reader. And most importantly, it is about communication.

b) Stimulate your child’s divergent thinking and guide them to become independent writers and learners.

Featuring a large array of themes and topics relevant to the exams throughout the academic year, we help students in unlocking their creative potential, tailored to their unique abilities and performance goals. Lessons involve hands-on activities where students create their own writing pieces while using language and literary devices. They receive guidance from writing teachers who are writers themselves, with vast experience in literary and genre fiction creation.
