It's nearly the end of Term 4! Again! How?!
At this time of the year, we would usually be planning the launch party for our annual anthology, Writ-Bits. However, in keeping with the unusual (and not all bad) theme of 2020, instead of a party at the studio, we are individually packing and mailing the books out to make sure each of the young writers receives their copy before Christmas. AND we're 'launching' online from Monday December 7 (our last week of the year) - follow us on Instagram to join the celebrations!
For this year's edition, we invited the young writers in our Story Writing Clubs and Writing Mentorships to describe a character who goes through a weird time in their life, and how it changes them. As their stories developed, we asked them to reflect on their own experiences of unexpected change in order to provide depth to their fictional characters, and show how they came to terms with their own weird times.
Rambunctious dragons, enterprising turtles, nervous horses, and other strange and wonderful characters coming to terms with their own weird times. In doing so, they show us how we can all adapt. And perhaps how we already have.
Read on for a sneak peak at some of the stories!
