Workshop: Story by Bedtime

This practical afternoon workshop got our JBW audience writing a bedtime story to read to their loved ones. They had the chance to explore some of the elements of a good bedtime story: drama, tension, adventure, goodies, baddies, and a happy end, and learnt how to tell a story that will put someone to sleep… without boring them!

A practical creative writing workshop on the importance of the hidden and unspoken in fiction and memoir. Secrets and secret places create mystery and tension, as well as good ingredients for story and character development. Explore, through writing and sharing stories, the secret meeting places and hidden gems of this city. Participants created fiction out of their own indiscretions, and invented characters with disturbing addictions, secret crushes, and unbearable tsures.
