Yesterday evening we ran a free online workshop on writing for children. The workshop was put together by Amanda Addison, author of Boundless Sky. Over 140 people registered their interest to attend this event.
This event was originally part of our programme of in-person meetings at Chantry Hall, but with COVID-19 and lockdown, we had to cancel all of our in-person meetings. We wanted to offer something for people to do during lock down, so we decided to offer it online. While we do miss our little get togethers at Chantry Hall, it was wonderful to meet so many new faces from all over the world.
The workshop was broken down into a series of videos. Each video was posted at a specific time. Together, we worked through the exercises, all from the comfort of our own home.
It was wonderful to see so many amazing ideas for children’s stories! We hope you will continue to work on them.
If you missed the workshop, we’ll be keeping the videos up until the end of the week, so you have time to go through them and take part in the workshop.
After, we’re looking into uploading them to YouTube so they can be taken any time.
We’d like to thank everyone who took part and made the event as fun as it was. We’d also like to thank Amanda for collaborating with us to produce the workshop.
