Seeing beyond the simple sentence to the whole story that’s really in your head – and how to get it down on paper. A story expanding workshop for kids.
How do stories become books? Susannah takes kids through all the key steps in book publishing from the first idea to brainstorming, drafting, editing and illustration to book covers and marketing. An interactive workshop that involves kids in the decision-making.
Susannah tells kids the stories behind the stories of some of Australia’s most popular book series – EJ Girl Hero, D-Bot Squad, Boy vs Beast and Zac Power – and fires up kids’ imagination to write their own hero stories.
Do you have what it takes to be a secret agent? While telling the story behind EJ Girl Hero and putting kids through a code-cracking drill, Susannah turns an ordinary school into a top-secret spy agency in this interactive talk that’s as much about the power of wondering and imagination as it is about problem-solving.
