Sidney Literary Festival - Writing Workshop for Kids

The Sidney Literary Festival is just around the corner. Do you know of any young writers who would like to join us on Saturday, October 5 for a writing workshop? Here are the basics - more details (and information about other events and workshops) on the festival website.

* Age 9 to 12 writer’s workshop with Nikki Tate 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, Sidney Library, Nell Horth Room

Children’s writer and storyteller Nikki Tate will bring her fabulous workshop “Creating Characters who Giggle and Weep (and Keep Strange Things Under Their Bed)" to the festival. Young writers will explore techniques for creating interesting, believable characters through a series of hands-on writing exercises.

Let your young writing friends know - it's always so cool to see what the kids come up with! Youth workshops are all sponsored events, so no charge to participants. Can't beat that!
