Years 1-2: African picture books
I read my picture book DON’T SPILL THE MILK, accompanied by hi-res illustrations onscreen (Christopher Corr), and then help the class to produce ideas for a sequel, DON’T DROP THE MANGO!
Years 3-4: Creating interesting characters for your stories
Using photographs of children from around the world as a springboard, I lead the class through the process of coming up with intriguing and believable story characters.
Years 5-6: ‘Limited third person’ point of view
Using examples from my book SURVIVOR TITANIC, I introduce the advanced technique of ‘limited third person’ storytelling and give students opportunities to experiment with it themselves.
I also offer thriller-writing or travel-writing workshops for secondary level students.
