One Day Workshops

Historical Fiction Writing Workshops 2017

I am running One Day Historical Fiction Writing Workshops for children (age 8-12 yrs) during the Easter Holidays.

Combining my love of History with writing fiction, this workshop will explore how to write about fictional characters within particular historic periods.

Participants will create characters within specific times in the past e.g. The Famine, Ancient Rome, 1916 Rising, The American Civil War, The Titanic etc. Anything goes!

The workshop will cover three key areas of writing : character creation, setting the scene and plot.
Each writer will have lots of fun and return home with the beginnings of (and in some cases complete) story, written entirely by themselves, set in the past!
