Monsters Under the Bed is a creative writing school, and part of the National Arts Council’s Art Elective Programme. Our writing syllabus is conceptualized by professional writers, and vetted by former NIE teachers. Rather than use model essays, we believe in a writing syllabus that involves reading, games, simulation, and multi-modal forms of instruction. In schools our focus is on delivering literacy skills in a manner aligned with your excellence model.
