Join Michael Redhill, winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, for a session on the art of storytelling. We’ll examine the concepts of character and structure and look at how stories are built. With hands on exercises and a Q&A component to address specific interests and concerns, don’t miss this opportunity to hone your storytelling skills.
An award winning playwright, editor and novelist for readers young and old, he is known for his "poetic touch and finely drawn characters" (Publisher’s Weekly). CBC Books says, "Michael Redhill's book Saving Houdini is a classic adventure for young readers about a Toronto boy named Dashiel who is sent back in time by a magic trick gone wrong. Dashiel, with the help of his new 1920s friend Walt, must find his way back home (and might even save Houdini's life along the way)."
Workshop for writers in grades 4-7.
