Event description

Description

Join First Story and UCL Special Collections for a unique evening of creative writing inspired by rare pieces from the university's archive. Led by novelist and short story writer, Rachel Seiffert, the event aims to give English teachers the tools to create effective writing workshops using objects as prompts - practical ways to inspire both descriptive and narrative writing at KS3 & 4. A resource pack will be provided at the end of the session with workshop ideas to use in the classroom.

The event will be held in the Haldane Room, Wilkins Building (main building) of UCL and refreshments will be provided on arrival.

Please let us know in advance if you will require step free access.
