Write like Roald Dahl at Tatton Park
Thu 20 October 2016, 10:30 – 16:00 BST
A special opportunity to experience a creative writing workshop with former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler. With or without illustrations our young readers need to be able to imagine the environment of where a story takes place and see clearly what the characters are like. Roald Dahl was a master at showing them this. In this creative writing workshop we will 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. The package includes a cream tea and a notebook and pen for you to use during the session and then take home to continue your writing journey.
