What will we create today?
What if you were the main character in a story? What would the world of your story look like? What would happen?
Follow the steps below to create an illustrated story in which you are the main character. This will be a story about you, your family and your community that only YOU can write!
Here’s some advice from Zanib Mian, author of the Planet Omar series:
Tell the stories that you have lived. People want to read them! You don’t have to write the kinds of stories that are already out there. Be you, in life and in your writing, and that’s what people will love.
You’ll learn about all of the stages behind creating a story: from coming up with ideas and making plans, to illustrating, drafting and writing up your final story.
You will need:
- A mirror
- Pens, pencils and paper
- Your imagination!
