Length: 60 minutes (flexible)

Group size: small to class-size

 

Learning outcomes:

a) Students will understand key elements of the writing process. 

b) Students will produce a short piece of writing, applying their understanding.

c) Students will be enthused to read and write..

 

Activity:

 

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:
