Explore the form, discuss ideas around writing for children and take part in a bite-sized interactive workshop.



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.


About the workshop series

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.
