Phil Earle’s Creative Writing Workshops are ideal for groups of 20-30 students with teacher supervision.  By having a smaller groups it means we can give pupils as much encouragement and attention as possible.

These sessions are 1 hour long sessions but can be adapted and made longer for secondary students.

Sessions for primary and junior pupils

  • I use my stories as a springboard, to show students how simple and enjoyable it is to pull characters straight from their imaginations.
  • Within an hour, they’ll come away with the building blocks necessary to put these characters inside their own stories.

Sessions for secondary and FE students

  • I often facilitate an exercise that underlines the importance of an effective prologue in fiction.
  • Using the first page of ‘Being Billy’, we undertake three simple tasks that allow the students to finish the prologue in a genre of their own choice.
  • It’s a session that consistently produces great, imaginative work and proves that creative writing doesn’t have to be a struggle.
