talks and workshops

Her two hour workshop for girls or mixed group in years 3-6 uses a broad array of hats to enhance and focus children’s writing experiences. The different types of people who wear a ‘writer’s hat’ are identified, and a step by step story plan for a selected hat is mapped, covering idea gathering and selection; setting the scene; character development; powerful introductions; the writing adventure; destination and detours; and story ownership and titles.

This is a fantastic workshop for getting older primary students involved in the creative writing process.
