I am running historical fiction writing workshops for children and for teenagers.
The focus of these workshops is on having fun and learning how to create an exciting story within a particular historical setting. Combining my degree in History with writing skills, I help participants create characters such as roman emperors, world war heroes, famine victims or rebels of the Easter Rising in 1916.
These workshops are suitable for children who have never attended a writing class before and also for children who regularly attend writing classes. I cater for all abilities, including gifted children and children with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dysgraphia.
