Speak Out writing workshop

Last term we were inspired by a World Building Workshop we attended with Tamsin. During the workshop we were asked to write down several words from different categories such as colours and places to go. After that we were asked to come up with a sentence that included all the words we had written down. We then shared them with each other. Although we weren’t very confident to do so in the beginning, as we went on we got more confident and better at sharing our work. The next task we were told to complete was a world building exercise which involved creating a fantasy setting on a map. We were then asked to create some characters that would inhabit this world and interact with each other in an interesting plot. After that we wrote an opening to the story containing the world and the characters we had created on the map. It was a fun experience and it really encouraged us to get involved in creative writing and to give it a go.

"Although we weren’t very confident to do so in the beginning, as we went on we got more confident and better at sharing our work."

We would like to thank Tamsin Winter for this enriching opportunity. Participating as a group was both enjoyable and invaluable.
