Join the South Coast Writers Centre’s school holiday program for a day of interactive workshops for primary and high school-aged readers and writers at Coledale Community Hall!
Do you like world-building and inventing exciting places for your characters to play in? In this two-hour workshop, we will investigate how to create fantastical and compelling worlds for our stories, thinking about everything from physical geography to possible magic systems, to what the occupants of your story look like and how they behave. We will do a lot of fun, relaxed writing prompts, and even do some drawing, as we create wonderful worlds together. BOOK NOW
Who Are You? (Exploring character and voice)
2.30pm-4.30pm for Ages 14-18
Characters are the cornerstones of any story, and stories shine brightest when those characters are distinct and three-dimensional. In this workshop we will explore the different ways characters can look, think, move and interact with each other, as well as learn the things they want and what makes them tick. We will also explore and celebrate our storytelling voices—from character and narrative voice to our own unique writing style. Connect with other writers and build new writing skills as we play with character and voice in this two-hour workshop. BOOK NOW
