Event description

Description

A special opportunity to gain creative writing inspiration and obtain guidance from successful playwright and former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. Of this workshop, Joy said: “Children like good stories; ones they can connect with. In this workshop, we will discuss how to achieve these without falling into clichés and dull storylines. We will find exciting and unusual characters, who will lead us to tell our young readers about adventures and exploits that they will love to listen to again and again. We will also look at why the details matter and how to ‘paint’ them into our stories making them seem natural and realistic no matter how fantastic or grotesque.” Intended for adult visitors. This event must be pre-booked and includes park entry admission on the day of the workshop.
