Inventing a story that’s yours
Inventing A Story using a surprising starting point
Creative writing project – Me & My Balloon – my Favourite Story Structure Workshop
Workshop images with a community group working on a creative writing project using art as a start.
Working with community groups can be a challenge but stories are a universal glue. This workshop has been used with a variety of community groups such as children in care and SEN pupils from specialist schools and groups.
Often these stories a biographical and always interesting. Often they can channel energy or act as a conduit. Support workers and staff are invariably pleased with the outcome of these workshops and often surprised with the quality or engagement by the participants.
I think me and my balloon is my favourite story ever but there are so many variations, trains, fish, clocks, handbags, bikes…to name but a few.
