Workshop

Finding Inspiration (workshop for 13-17 year olds)

Wednesday 18 August
National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall
11am - 1.30pm
£5 (bursaries available)

What do you do when you’re faced with a blank page? In this workshop by led Ben Gaffrey, we’ll find inspiration from our own lives and experiences to start writing fictional stories. We’ll merge our real lives with stories, taking influences from our favourite seasons, colours, sounds, and smells, to build realistic settings, characters, and stories.

Places are limited to 10 participants – please book in advance to secure your seat.

Please note: Parents and guardians are not expected to stay for the workshop – Dragon Hall is located a short walk from the city centre and is surrounded by shops and coffee shops. If the attendee has needs which require additional support, please book an essential companion ticket.

Covid-19 precautions

Places are limited to 10 to ensure social distancing. We ask that masks are worn in the building but they can be removed once sat in the workshop.
