AS/A Level Creative Writing
I have also built some workshops that are specifically geared to cater for students of AS/A2 level Creative Writing.
The workshops are designed with examining body requirements in mind and reinforce skills that students will need to hone for their coursework and exam, while remaining fresh and interesting.
“I’ve worked with Jasmine Cooray on a range of projects over the past five years, and consider her among the best of the facilitators and practitioners I’ve collaborated with. Jasmine's keen understanding of the craft of both the writing and performance of poetry combined with an empathic awareness of her student’s/participant’s needs ensure that her workshops and projects are engaging, rewarding experiences for all involved." - Jacob Sam La Rose
Comments from Students of The National University of Singapore about Jasmine's Workshops :
‘one of the most interesting workshops I’ve had the fortune to attend. What struck me most was how easily Jasmine built a rapport with participants, and created a safe space in which such participants felt comfortable sharing experiences. The workshop was well-paced, with plenty of time to listen to and reflect on the work produced by the group. It was a though-provoking afternoon’.
‘Jasmine’s sensitivity, perspective, warmth and good humour provided a guiding hand for our journey into poetry. She broke down the barriers and made it less scary to make art’
‘the atmosphere of her workshops emphasized the openness required in any creative endeavours’
‘a fundamental part of my university semester’
‘Jasmine’s passion for writing is infectious! I loved the safe and nurturing space she created’
‘I never thought I was capable of legitimate poetry until I came to this workshop’
‘I aspire to her awesomeness, sincerity and care’
‘these sessions left me with feelings of absolute tranquility and charged with inspiration. Truly divine!’
