Hello and welcome to Storymakers, the creative writing club for budding authors.

Rose and Billy Bud are ready to welcome you to our weekly creative writing workshops and more regularly, for our story writing courses.

I will be running sessions on Saturdays at 3-5pm from September 9th, as follows:

  • ‘Ideas’ workshop 9th Sept, 23rd Sept, 7th Oct
  • Story development 16th Sept, 30th Sept, 14th Oct

The workshops are suitable for children aged 8+ and cost £10 per child.

I also have the option of a six-week course, running weekly (Saturdays) from 9th September. This would be one hour per week, 2-3pm at a cost of £45. This course will cover:

Week 1 – narrowing down your ideas
Week 2 – character development
Week 3 – plotting and planning
Week 4 – viewpoint
Week 5 – language and descriptions/settings
Week 6 – editing

This is for children who love writing and who would like to learn more about how to refine their ideas and turn them into a story. My aim would be for each child to produce a 500 word story at the end of this course that they can enter into the BBC 500 words competition.

For those wishing to work on their creative writing skills over a longer period, I have a fortnightly writing club, also on a Saturday at 5-6pm at a cost of £45 per term.

Class sizes for all of these are limited to six and they will take place in my lovely garden office in Sevenoaks, Kent, the perfect setting for budding authors to grow their skills.
