This is a virtual excursion for Stage 2 & 3 students.

In this quickfire writing workshop, students develop an adventure story featuring a flawed, underdog main character, whose abilities will be challenged by an escalating series of obstacles built to challenge them. We’ll discuss why perfect characters are boring, how to use a ‘plot mountain’ for story structure and how to use writing techniques to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Students will need a pencil and paper for this session.  

ZOOM ONLY: Please download and print a copy of the writing workbook for each student to complete during the session:
