Want to write for children and young adults?


100 Story Studio is a series of creative writing workshops, run one Saturday each month at 100 Story Building.

Each workshop will be presented by an award-winning and best-selling children's and YA author; on Saturday, 22 February, 2014 Tony Birch will host a workshop entitled "The Writer's Notebook', and on Saturday, 29 March 2014 Jane Godwin and Davina Bell will host 'The Big 5 Writing Workshop'.

Through these workshops, the special guest speakers will share their extensive experience of writing for young audiences and present different aspects of the writing craft.



In "The Writer's Notebook,' acclaimed author Tony Birch (Shadowboxing (2006), Father's Day (2009), and Blood (2011)) will lead a practical writing workshop which will explore the creative process.



This workshop is ideal for writers of all skill levels; from beginner writers to emerging writers looking for insight into their own creative process.

Workshop participants will walk away with inspiration for gathering ideas, practical exercises to further develop a 'Writer's Notebook' and a deeper understanding of the creative process.
