Creative Play Story Writing Workshops

Canalside House

2-13 year olds



Write and publish a short story for FREE!

To attend the after school workshops at Canalside House Wednesday afternoons, online registration and advance booking are advised. Register and book a place.

Parents and carers are helping 2 - 5 year olds to write their stories. Read their stories published in the Story Library.

Young writers use the 7-sentence story templates to draft and publish their stories. The 7-sentence structure guides the writing process, to inspire an amazing story. We call it 'Creative Play Story Writing' or "Story Writing with Play'!

At the end of a story telling session the participants enjoy relaxing by doing something different. So, we take one or two colouring books to every event and share the pages among the participants. Our team recommend these for relaxation. Parents and carers enjoy this activity, too.
