Event description
Attendees learn all about character and plot before writing their very own short story. Then they get to print it out to take home!

About this event

Despite the emergence of ebooks most writers will tell you very little compares to the thrill of holding a physical copy of their book in their hands! We want to recreate that experience for Nottingham's young writers (this workshop is aimed for children aged from 8-15-years-old).

In this collaborative session, Steve Katon from the Nottingham Writers' Studio will initially lead a writing workshop showing the attendees how to create and get to know their character. The attendees will discover what their character wants and needs, what it's afraid of and what's at stake for them, before setting them off on their adventure using the proven structure of stories.

Following this, Craig Proud from Dizzy Ink will walk the attendees through design, print and create their own physical book to take home!

Throughout this course attendees will...

  • Create a character from scratch and understand what makes them tick.
  • Look at the proven structure of stories from 'Once Upon a Time' through to 'Ever Since that Day.'
  • Use what they've learned so far to write a story with their character in it.
  • Learn the art of environmentally friendly Risograph printing and create their own personal storybook.
