Create vivid and memorable child characters for fictional stories
Read the course outline.
Join this two-day creative writing masterclass to explore how your favourite child characters in fiction were created and experiment with writing fiction of your own. Whether you’re a budding author of children’s stories, writing adult fiction featuring child characters, or simply seeking some understanding of how novels are made, this course provides a supportive and creative environment to explore and develop your creative ideas.
Take inspiration from some of the books, characters, authors and ideas featured in our exhibition Marvellous and Mischievous. By reading and discussing sample texts together, explore the characteristics of classic and contemporary child protagonists, including Pippi Longstocking, Harry Potter, Julian (Is A Mermaid) and Xiomara (The Poet X), to discover what makes inspiring, vivid and memorable characters in fiction. Through varied and enjoyable creative writing exercises, compose your own characters, scenes and stories. There's also be an opportunity to discuss routes to further study or publication.
