Reading Rocks are pleased to announce an exclusive workshop with picture book author Sarah Tagholm: Writing in First Person.

About the event

At this event for writers and aspiring children’s authors, Sarah will talk about the inspirations and experiences behind We are the Wibbly.

She will discuss techniques to finding your characters’ voice and run an idea generating exercise. She will also run an exercise based on her time working with British film director Mike Leigh, focussing on ‘getting in to character.’

There will be an opportunity for attendees to share their work should they wish.

Sarah will provide recommendations and read excerpts of other first person narrated books from children’s and adult literature and there will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the session.

Here’s Sarah to introduce the event:
