Do you have a young writer in your family? If so, there is a high chance they will be thoroughly enthused by our festival programme for Children and Young People.
For teen writers, local author Ally Aldridge will be sitting down with local bookworm Phoebe Storer to discuss reading and writing the fantasy genre in our Let’s Talk Fantasy event on Saturday 17th June at 11.30am. Then, Mark Lowery joins us from 3-4pm for his Doughtnuts, Chips and Writing Tips session – young writers and readers will love his interactive and funny chat all about the things that matter most in life: reading, writing and, of course, fish and chips! Look forward to magic tricks and tips about how to be a brilliant writer.
The writing fun doesn’t stop there – local author Dominique Valente , creator of the Starfell series, will be sharing her advice and tips about creating fantasy worlds on Sunday 18th June at 1.15pm. Perfect for budding writers aged 8-12 (and the sort of grown ups who, as C.S. Lewis said, might be old enough for fairytales again).
