Children’s Writing Workshop with Cake for the Gestapo author, Jacqueline King (suitable for children aged 10+)

About this event

From the workshop host, Jacqueline King:

After a short writing warm up, I’ll help you to write the bare bones of a WW2 story. After showing you a few WW2 artefacts, such as Red Cross Messages and a crystal radio, I hope you will enjoy creating a character in a Jersey setting, a villain or a hero!

We’ll look at characterisation, action, reaction and pace and I’ll discuss with you my own experience of the process of editing and publishing

By the end of the session, I hope you will feel that your fictional character has become as real to you as your friends – or enemies – and that you want to tell their story.

Bring paper and pencils or pens!
