Led by poet and novelist Claire Collison, this fun and immersive day is designed for 11 - 16 year olds who love to write. You'll be learning how to use objects to narrate, paintings to provoke, and spaces to inspire. With hands-on exercises that can be applied to your own writing ideas, and opportunities to share your work throughout the session, you'll leave fired up and kitted out with tools to develop as a writer.
Whatever type of writing you like to do, everyone is welcome. Places are strictly limited, so early booking is essential. Bring your curiosity, imagination and a packed lunch. Tickets are £15 each and available on our website: https://www.soane.org/whats-on/families/creative-writing-workshop-young-people
