Year 7 Writing Workshop

My class recently participated in a writing workshop with Lucy Christopher, an experienced novelist from England. We focused on creating ideas to start our book. We spent a few minutes just writing whatever came to mind, from random words to the first page of a book. We were then asked questions such as: what are we afraid of? As we wrote our one word answers down we began to see a plot forming on the page. I had so much fun; often our answers were random and out of place which brought about laughter and good memories.  I, and many others were inspired to continue writing after we had finished the workshop. It was a great experience learning where the ideas for a great book come from.”
