We offer workshops that support Reading, Creative Writing, and Illustration for young people of any age. We also perform storytelling and poetry at events such as The Halloween Pumpkin Walk at Bodenham Arboretum, Hartlebury Castle, The Hive in Worcester and many other places. Although our main focus is always to entertain, we understand the importance of engaging with the audience and ensuring they are involved. If you’d like any further information about our workshops and storytelling, please send us a message on the contact tab
The adventure began with a story of our own, Max & Luchia: The Game Makers. The main characters are an eleven-year-old dyslexic boy and his sister who travel to a fairy-tale kingdom of castles, dragons, vampires and giants. In the workshops, we use the words and illustrations in the book to encourage young writers to create something of their own. We can also offer bespoke workshops according to your requirements and have provided workshops for reception classes all the way through to year 12.
As keen supporters of young people’s writing, we sponsor the Worcestershire Litfest Young Writers’ competition. The annual competition is aimed at three categories i.e. years 3-6, years 7-9 and years 10-12. We would love to visit your school/community group to encourage young people’s imagination to fly.
This is the first part of chapter 1 of Max & Luchia: The Game Makers, including suggestions for young people to create their own stories
and the second part of chapter 1
