Creative Writing with Luisa
Hi, I’m Luisa Plaja!
I’m an author, editor, linguist and creative writing tutor.
My first short story was published in a national magazine when I was 14 years old. My novels, stories and non-fiction books have since been published in many countries.
I’ve always been passionate about reading and writing. I’m enthusiastic about inspiring a love of the written word in children and teenagers, aiming to spark lifelong creativity.
Group classes for children: Lively, fun writing activities
Writing is a magical form of communication. Your child can join a small group class with me to maximise the enjoyment. We’ll spark each other’s ideas and imaginations, we’ll laugh together and generally have friendly fun with words and writing!
One-to-one: Focus your child’s imagination
Would you prefer a more tailored approach? I can give one-to-one lessons focusing on specific skills or simply guiding your children through the development of their own stories from start to finish.
Distance learning: Encouragement and support with full flexibility
If you need more flexibility, try an approach that fits around all of your commitments. I can send you study notes and writing exercises for your child to complete in their own time. You can then send me a picture of their written work for my feedback and support whenever it’s convenient for you.
I have a first class honours degree in Linguistics and a Cambridge CELTA English teaching certificate. I’m a multi-published author in several countries. I’ve been a professional in the world of words and writing for many, many (yikes!) years. Find out more about me.
I hold an up-to-date Enhanced DBS certificate for working with children.
Fun for All!
I have a lively, fun, inclusive approach in my group lessons. I tailor my one-to-one sessions to each student.

Luisa’s lessons were great. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed them and was always waiting for the next lesson. She usually starts a story and never finishes but the lessons with Luisa motivated her to write a story from start to finish. What I liked as a parent was, Luisa sends emails at end of every lesson with summary of what was discussed and worksheets which were quite useful to revisit later.
In a nutshell, creative writing with Luisa was amazing!
Many thanks… for making the course such an enjoyable experience. [My daughter] has always enjoyed writing and it has been both a privilege and inspirational to learn from an actual published author.
[My daughter] really enjoyed the sessions, I’d find her logged on and waiting in front of the laptop at least 30 mins before each session 🙂
I’m sure you’ve inspired her to write even more and better.
