Creative Writing

Body Painting Lo

It's not only books! From movies to Netflix to Instagram, we are surrounded by stories. In these sessions we will learn how to write our own tales and how important it is to tap into the narratives that exist all around us. We work on developing short stories that will be used in our film and our 2021 theatre show.

The session will be fun and practical. No experience is needed and these sessions  will work with all ability levels.
So whether you have written creatively before or someone who wants to learn new skills this is the course for you.

What to wear or bring    
Paper and pens.
Any refreshments or snacks to have during breaks.

This is part of the Carnival and Video Project
