Little Amal broke free from the laziness monster and escaped to the ideas garden to write her thoughts! You can escape your own monster when you register for this workshop and learn how to write a story. Discover what kind of monster is chasing you – is he scary looking, is he nice or naughty, and how will your character get rid of him?
Learn how to create the hero of your story, what kind of adventure to send them on and how they will defeat the monster, in a workshop that will open your imagination and improve your writing skills. You will finish the workshop with the first draft of your new story.
