Location: Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge, Co. Kildare
Date: Sat 22 February 2020
Time: 10.30 – 1.30pm
Age Suitability: 9-13 years
This workshop explores creating fictional character who travel backwards and forwards in time. Think of Back to the Future, Doctor Who and Hermione using the Time Turner in Harry Potter! The workshop covers key skills: character creation, opening the story, setting the scene and plot. Writers will return home with the beginnings of (and in some cases complete) story, written entirely by themselves, set in the present, past and future!
