Time & Location

Online via Zoom
How do you take an idea and turn it into a children's book? What age group are you aiming at, picture books or young adult? We will explore how to start writing for children whether fiction or non-fiction, build characters and narrative alongside an overview of what publishers expect and want.
Our ESF Get Creative! Cultivate Programme workshops are open to everybody - no dress code, no qualifications. We strongly believe everybody is creative, everybody ‘writes’. Writing is what you think, say, see, touch, feel and do - you just need to choose how to express it. These workshops will be fun, engaging and accessible - valuing everyday creativity.
The focus will be on exploring ways to express yourself and find your voice, where your creativity is also part of your well being.
The workshops will be run by Amanda White Writer (Poet, Children's, Fiction and Travel) and Creative Practitioner with experience in education, healthcare, community and corporate settings and founder of THE DAILY HAIKU, with 11k+ members worldwide.
If you complete the workshop task sheet and submit your work we will also put it through OCN’s moderation process so that you can gain a Level 2 unit accreditation for the workshop. This is not a full course certification, but it is a recognized qualification and might be useful for your CV or CPD if you are in work.
The work submitted for accreditation will also be eligible to be submitted for selection into an anthology of writing and photography from all our ESF creative workshops. We will be publishing this anthology online and hopefully as a printed book.
