A Creative Writing Course for Children.
Suitable for all budding writers
Groups for years 3 & 4 and 5 & 6
This course is designed to get children excited about the power of their imaginations and their own story-making potential.
These will be available online and in person, in the Bradford area, from September 2021, as an after school club or club for home schooling networks.
The course is delivered over 10 one hour sessions, as follows:
Idea Catching & the Art of the Daydream
In this session we will explore questions like:
Where do ideas come from?
How do you know when you've got one?
What do you do with one when you've found one?
We find out how famous children's books like Where The Wild Things Are and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory first started out, and what happened to grow them into the stories we know and love.
Inventing New Characters & Getting to Know Them
In this session we will find out about ways to dream up our very own unique characters.
Then we will spend some time getting to know them a little, so we can really bring them to life.
We will explore questions like:
What do they look like?
How do they sound?
How do they feel? How do they act?
And most importantly of all...What do they want?
