Start A Story Young Writers Workshop
A group story building adventure for children from K-6!
Author Timm Holmes guides a group of children through the process of creating their very own children’s story! Working together, the children will share their ideas, combine ideas, and vote for their favourites. Two art breaks help us add individual ideas and details to our story. The adventure culminates in a storytelling of the tale the children have just created to prove to them that they’ve written something amazing!
That’s just the start! Where will they take their story from here? What would they change? Which details would they add? How will they share their adventure?
