Event Organiser


Granby Street,
LE11 3DZ


Who's it for? This is an introductory so no experience is necessary, just bring a pen and paper and get started. This session is adults only.

F.T. Gibbet is the creator of the SongStarz series of books, songs and musical for schools (12+), and the Captain Marion series of books (8+). She lives with her cat, a fox and a family of squirrels in the Midlands.
Have you ever wanted to write for children or young adults (YA), and don't know where to start? If yes, this workshop is for you! In the two hour session we'll look at what makes a great children's/YA book; what makes compelling story, plot and character. We'll also take a look at some examples in different age groups and genres, before having a go with some writing exercises and touching on working with illustrators and getting your work published.
