The session will be a workshop with interaction and 'mini-presentation'.
This workshop will look at the idea of writing as a craft, with a focus on creative writing. The workshop will firstly give teachers a chance to ‘play with writing’, and to think about themselves as writers. This will be achieved through engaging in practical writing workshop activities which are informal and unthreatening, and which explore and encourage reflection on the process of writing. Through this thinking about teachers as writers, the workshop will move to address children as writers and how we can create positive classroom communities of writers.
