Join local authors Angela Kecojevic and Sam Pope in creating spooky characters and scary stories in time for Halloween at our Spooky Stories workshop!
What do you find scary? And what makes the best spooky stories so spooky? Learn how to create your own hair-raising stories and terrifying tales with Sam and Angela, authors of spooky children’s books The Haunting of Lindy Pennyworth and Scareground.
Sam and Angela will read from their spooky books and show you the secrets to making characters and stories that give you the heebie-jeebies! Then, have a go at creating your own spooky character or story, with a chance to share with everyone at the end.
Workshop sessions are at 10.30-12.00 and 2.00-3.30.
