Teen Events this Summer
Igniting Writing Summer Teen Writing Workshops
Ever wanted to try writing and coming up with your own stories? Or share your ideas with other aspiring writers? If so, you’re in luck – Igniting Writing, Wokingham Library’s creative writing club, are running a series of action-packed writing workshops for anyone between 11-18 years old to take part in!
A Hero’s Journey
Everyone has wondered to themselves at least once ‘what would my life be like if I had superpowers?’ and this workshop is your chance to find out! If you’ve ever wanted to create your own superhero and tell the tales of their crimefighting exploits, this workshop will give you the opportunity to develop your own hero, with a backstory, supervillains and more!
Saturday July 28, 10.30am to 3pm
The World of Worldbuilding
All book-lovers enjoy immersing themselves in a world within the pages of a book, like Narnia or the Star Wars universe, but what do writers do to create those worlds? And how do you turn a collection of characters and settings into a whole world that a reader can imagine themselves living in? This workshop will focus on enabling you to create your own fictional world, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy or something else entirely, and build it from the ground up!
Saturday August 4, 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.
