Andrew Plant: Sparking your Silent Book

Session Info:

Finding an original way to approach a story can be difficult – how to come up with something that hasn’t been done before? Sometimes, changing your point of view can be the key, by finding an unusual character. And if words get in the way, try writing a story without words at all!

In this session, Andrew guides students through the process of creating a silent picture book, particularly the importance of strong characters and simple, clear narratives. For younger students in particular, who may struggle with a limited vocabulary, using pictures to tell a story is an excellent introduction to narrative writing.

Topics:
  • Character and page design
  • Narrative arcs – openings, conflict situations, resolutions
  • Story illustration
