Introduce your child to the world of books and writing with the online Words and Visuals program. This is the third edition of the program organized by Word to Word Consulting, a content management company. The session will be available in two bundles for children 10 to 12 years old.
Words and visuals will follow a play method to hone participants’ writing skills. “There will be word games, puzzles, role-playing, writing prompts and side-thinking exercises as part of the event. Children will be encouraged to express themselves creatively and make up their own stories. If children dream of being an author, it will give them tips and tricks for discovering the art of writing, ”explains Anjana Chandramouly, co-founder of the company.
There will also be a book reading and review session. “They will read books written by Ruskin Bond. Children will also be shown audio and video clips and they will have to express their understanding in words, ”she adds.
The first edition of the program took place offline in Chennai and Bengaluru in 2019. “There were 20 children. We’ve been online since last year due to COVID-19. It has increased our reach and now we have students from all over the world, ”she says. The team has published a selection of children’s poems and short stories online. “We hope to do it this year too. We’re just looking at the different options, ”she concludes.
