Creative Workshops Held by Author
Award winning author Ali Sparkes visited Senior Boys and Senior Girls to launch the first of her creative writing workshops for Year 8. A hugely successful and popular author herself, she shared her experiences and top tips to unlock the creative writer in all our pupils.
Paula Copeman, Senior Girls Librarian said:
“These workshops have been specially adapted by Ali for Claires Court from her 'Scribe Tribe' writing course. The first session focused on titles, blurbs and openings and address one of the biggest issues... how do you attract attention for your story when there's so much distraction in our world?! Future workshops will develop many creative writing strategies including organising plot, creating atmosphere and managing dialogue.”
