An enthusiastic amateur writer, Sally Spade, is keen to share her love of stories and in particular graphic novels. How do they work? What’s involved? Can anyone create one? With the help of some well-known Superheroes, Sally takes the children on a journey of discovery into the world of storytelling.
This session has been devised to engage and inspire boys, in particular, who may need some encouragement to find the writer within, but works equally well with all children. The session can also be adapted to encourage self confidence and sense of worth – helping children to find their own superpowers within.
During this workshop, the children will:
Discuss what makes a good story
Learn how a story can be structured
Look at characterisation
Explore story telling through mime
Create and perform their own version of a super hero tale
