A Poulton-based author has launched a new series of creative writing workshops for schools and private groups of children.
Gianna Hartwright, the pen name of Jane Hunt, who launched her most recent title, The Befana Drama, in October, has created Befana Drama Writing Workshops, aimed at key stage two children.
The workshops, which run across Lancashire and beyond, last for a day and see children tackling all manner of tasks and exercises designed to get them thinking.
They focus on ideas generation, creating good and bad characters, developing a plot through story mapping and exciting ways of using language.
Schools wanting more information about the workshops can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (01253) 891114.
