Jane Godwin: Author Talk: Middle Primary

Session Info:

5 Steps to a Great Story
An interactive talk that also includes some simple, quick and fun writing activities. Jane talks about different ways we can develop an idea, demonstrating this using the students’ contributions and also examples from her own books. This is used as a springboard for some three-minute writing activities that the students can build on later if they wish to create their own story. Jane then talks about the writing process – planning, drafting, language, character and plot – and gives the students tips from her own experience as a writer and publisher. Explaining the writing process in 5 straightforward steps allows students to feel equipped to tackle – and master! – narrative writing.
