In this session Katherine talks about how to write compelling stories by making your writing come alive on the page.
Using examples from her short stories as well as her critically acclaimed picture book, Squish Rabbit, Katherine demonstrates how she carefully crafts her writing. Learn all about where she gets ideas and how she observes real life to inform her writing. Discover how to make strong word choices, create vivid descriptions and write compelling character pieces.
Kids will benefit from a range of fun and creative writing activities.
‘Destined to be a family favourite, Squish Rabbit has ‘classic’ written all over it.’ Michael Gerard Bauer, award-winning children’s author of The Running Man.
