Look out for the Summer Creative Wiritng Workshops with Igniting Writing
Fanfiction Addiction – Everyone has a series they love getting sucked into, whether it’s a book, a TV show, a movie, or something else entirely. If you’ve ever wanted to explore Hogwarts, or write about Sherlock Holmes in a whole new series of adventures, this workshop is your chance to give it a go and discover an amazing range of stories you can tell with characters and settings you know and love.
Saturday July 27, 10.30am to 3pm
Once Upon a Fairy Tale –Classic fairy tales, like Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, have been retold countless times. But what is it about those stories that make fairy tales so timeless? And how can they be reimagined and written in the modern day? This workshop will focus on the core elements of fairy tale stories, from characters to settings, and give you the chance to create your own fictional fables.
Saturday August 3, 10.30am to 3pm
Both of the workshop sessions will include fun writing exercises, group discussions and some useful tips and tricks to sharpen your writing skills.
There will be a lunch break, so make sure you bring something with you.
£5 charge, per session.
Places must be booked by calling Wokingham Library on 0118 978 1368.
