Steve Cole – author of Astrosaurs, Young Bond, Doctor Who books, Swarm Rising (with astronaut Tim Peake) and his latest book Swarm Enemy - leads audiences on a laugh-a-minute, high energy, ukulele-accompanied master class in "chucking imagination at words" (aka telling stories).
Steve will teach children quick-and-easy ways to invent story ideas, share secret writing tips and what it’s like to work with real life astronaut, with time for Q&A too. Attendees will come away enthused and inspired to leap into new adventures in creative writing!
This is a hybrid event, and people can attend either in-person at the Hat Factory, or join the online stream.
