Alex Miles: The Imagination Muscle

Session Info:

The Imagination Muscle uses active games and tasks to show kids that the ‘Imagination Muscle’ is something everyone is born with. And just like the other muscles in our body, the more we train them, the stronger they’ll become. In this workshop we focus on training the Imagination Muscle to help make reading more fun and to write better stories.

Alex draws on her experience from writing books in the Zac Power and Olive Black series, as well as her time as a storyliner on Neighbours. She’s flexible and will endeavor to accommodate specific requests, for example, author Q&A at the end of the session.

Teacher resources and a personalised class poster are emailed after each visit.

Topics include:

  • What is our Imagination Muscle
  • How our imagination makes reading more fun
  • How our imagination helps us write better stories
  • Story generation and group activities
