Writing from Images: Writing workshop for children

23 November, 2019 @ 14:00 - 16:00


Both children and teens are invited to this interactive writing workshop with children’s writer, Steve Katon. Participants will make a series of collages from magazine images based on character, setting and plot to help develop a new idea for a story. You will then create a master collage that represents your overall synopsis before having a go at a short writing sprint using the visual prompts you have created or engaged with.

The aim of the workshop is to help generate ideas from different sources (Steve is a visual writer who is inspired by images either from his imagination or from the printed page, art or film). Building a collage inspires playfulness and helps your budding writers understand and visualise their characters, setting and plot.

About Steve Katon

Steve is an up and coming children’s writer and storyteller based in Nottingham. He is writing a middle-grade trilogy about a Victorian girl called Kitty Sparrowgrass who is friends with a cornish piskey and a gorilla. He is obsessed with stories in all of their forms. Apart from writing, he has dabbled in oral storytelling and would love to write a screenplay.
