Creative writing and Public Speaking Club
This club is designed to train young leaders within the ages of 13-18 by helping them to boost their writing and speaking skills in order to express themselves not just clearly, but also in the most creative of ways.
Here, learners have fun while developing their abilities to become critical thinkers, creative and very imaginative people who will eventually grow into adults who are creators of written and spoken content in a world where the ability to express oneself is highly esteemed. It will be a serene environment where everyone is free to write and talk about issues that matter to them. These subject matters will then be shaped into TED-style talks which will be given at a school organised TED Ed event. Over time students will find so-called arduous tasks like writing (poetry and prose) and public speaking interesting.
Since we are a new club, our aim is to grow into TED-approved TED Ed club by our first TED Ed event. We look forward to meeting you!
