Chris Vick | Author (books 10+ and YA)
Chris Vick works with pupils aged 11+ to encourage them to write their own stories. His workshops are practical, interactive and fun and can be booked over a period of weeks, so that students can work on an extended piece of writing, as well as single day bookings.
What I can do for you
I do author visits, talking about my books and the writing process. However, I’m more interested in talking to young writers about their work; about how we can create and tell stories as clearly and effectively as possible. I also offer workshop ‘series’; spread out over weeks, to help young writers develop particular projects.
Typical workshop themes:
- What is a story? – what makes a story, why do we tell them?
- ‘Once there was a —- who —’ : Creating story structure and frames
- ‘Splashes of colour on a page’ – Being creative with words
All workshops are practical interactive, fun and for all kinds of writers
