I will deliver a workshop on any of the following:
Plotting a good story
Developing believable characters
Worldbuilding & settings
Using figurative language to enhance descriptive writing
We will explore the chosen theme using props and extracts,* considering purpose and audience, alongside a number of activities and games. There will be a Q&A session. Students will be given time to put into practice the skills we've explored.
If time permits I will pair them up to critique their peer's work.
These are standalone workshops, they can be repeated to a number of different classes across a full-day. Or they may be combined to create a full-day of creative writing workshops for your class. Please visit my 'full-day' page for more details:
