Self-expression: Understanding and expressing the way you feel can be a complicated task, even for adults. Writing will give children a chance to explore how they feel, as well as giving them a new way to express how they feel. This is especially beneficial for reserved children, who may shy away from discussing their feelings with those around them.
Self-confidence: Writing is an opportunity for children to develop their opinions and share them. The feeling accompanied by sharing your opinions instead of keeping them to yourself, as well as the feeling of being heard, can greatly improve self-confidence
Creativity: Perhaps the best known benefit of creative writing, but it shouldn’t be overlooked. Writing helps a great deal when it comes to creativity, and it is especially important as creativity diminishes with age. The more creative they are, the more likely they will be able to come up with multiple alternatives in difficult situations, which could be important in life and future careers.
Imagination: It is important for your child to exercise their imagination, as it is what can help them change the future. Although that is often scoffed at, you can not create a future that you can not imagine.
Communication and persuasion: Well-written pieces of work involve organising, planning and use of language. These are all important skills that will be greatly improved by regular writing. It is also excellent practice for laying out your thoughts, and trying to convince someone of a certain point of view.
