Workshop: How To Write Children’s Fiction – Wednesday 21st November

September 20, 2018

How to Write Children’s Fiction: Taster Session 7 – 9 pm Wednesday 21st November

Please join us on a taster session and have the opportunity to sign up for a 10-week writing course in the New Year

In a supportive group and an art evoking environment, learners will have an overview of picture books to YA. They will create strong opening hooks, choose the right narration for their stories, make unique characters and learn how to form protagonist vs antagonist relationships. Pace, voice, twisted fairy tales, publication knowledge, hot tips and much, much more. Using children’s novels as examples, handout sheets and work shopping each other’s stories.

By the end of the course learners will have an outline if not a full manuscript of children’s fiction, a strong knowledge of the publishing world and hopefully a trusting writer’s group that can continue after the course.

Charlett Goretzka has a BA in Creative Writing and MA in Writing for Young People. She has taught Creative Writing to adults and children for ten years, working for Kilve Court Residential Education Centre and Somerset Skills & Learning. She is very up-to-date on what’s happening in the children’s fiction world from extensive research, knowing many children’s authors and having young ones of her own. So, if you would like to be enlightened, anyone who has an interest in children’s fiction and wants to learn how, why and what, please come along to a 2hr session before the 10-week Course in the New Year.

Past comments from learners:

Selina: “It was great to study so many different areas of children’s fiction over the 10-week course. We were guided through the process of preparing, writing and evaluating different pieces, as well as critiquing each other’s, in a cosy and personal atmosphere.

 Elaine: “I was fortunate enough to attend Charlett’s course on story-writing for children last year. She quickly made a team of the class, so much so that we are still meeting as an informal group a year later.

The content of the sessions was inspirational, and it was obvious that Charlett had prepared them meticulously.
