Teens Writing Camp with Deirdre Sullivan
Starts: Tues 16, Wed 17, Thurs 18 April 2019
Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm
Duration: 3 days
This workshop, for teens aged 14-17, will focus on creating pieces of work that they can edit and develop over the course of the three days. The participants will work on building stories, characters and worlds, and can also explore what works and doesn't work for them in the fiction they consume. Drawing on the fantastic and commonplace as writing prompts, the students will engage in a variety of ways to craft and hone their fiction.
