What to expect from the event

In this interactive presentation, Liz will introduce the Wildsmith series, explain where the ideas came from, and invite children to take part in a series of creative tasks – imagining a character, a setting and a super-power. Liz will read from the books before inviting children to use all their story ingredients in a brand new story of their own.

Here’s an introduction from the author to get your class excited about the event:
