Creative writing workshop for kids

STORYSHOP is a series of creative writing workshops for kids taking place at the Burnavon on Saturday mornings starting this weekend.

Storyshop is especially for any child aged 8 to 11 years who has a lively imagination or an interest in storywriting ,who would like to put these skills together in a fun and creative way.

The classes will be expertly led by well-known local writer Maura Johnston who had great success, not to mention fun, with our budding young writers in Autumn 2011. Week by week they wrote and read an array of short stories and poems on a variety of themes and using a range of styles.

This time round, Maura will inspire the kids with a bunch of new ideas in the hope that by the end of the course we will be able to go to print with the best of what is written, in a keepsake book for everyone to take away.

The workshops start this Saturday 18 February from 10.30am to 12.30pm and run for six weeks. There are still a few places left which can be booked at the Burnavon Box Office or by calling 867 69949 option 1, £20 for the six workshops.
