Creative Writing Workshops for Primary Schools – #LiverpoolWrites
As part of Liverpool’s Year of Writing (#LiverpoolWrites), author Jude Lennon has designed workshops to inspire pupils to find the joy in writing. The emphasis is on creativity, imagination, expression and writing for pleasure. Pupils will be freed from the constraints of SPAG and encouraged to find their voice and write freely.
You can book Jude to facilitate a workshop in school herself for £250; or you can link to the FREE 21-minute YouTube video for instructions about how to run the workshop, using the accompanying resources. Just click on the Booking/resource URL button (above right) to access these. Scroll down and click on ‘SHOW MORE’ to be able to download the resources.
The sessions will enable children to focus on the things they wish to write about. They will learn about four key elements of creative writing and use these to inform their own choices. These four elements include – themes, characters, settings and the curveball. Each element will enable the children to explore and find inspiration. They will have full control over the four elements they wish to include in their writing thus allowing them the freedom to express themselves.
There will be opportunities for discussion, collaboration and independent thought. Pupils will also be encouraged to share their writing throughout the session (if they wish).
