Suitable for 12 to 18 year olds.

In this workshop you’ll find new potential in old things. From images, characters, and formats to stories that you thought you knew, nothing will ever seem quite the same again.

We will be:

  • designing calligrams* (and antonymic calligrams)
  • splicing articles and poems and rearranging them to find new meaning
  • giving old words new purpose
  • creating new and unusual versions of fairy tales and legends from around the world by playing with endings and perspectives.

Sarah is a YA author and mentor. She lives in Bath but prefers living in books, or on planes or trains or remote unmapped places. Her début novel The Last Leaves Falling is set for release in spring 2015.

*A calligram is a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting is arranged in a way that creates a visual image.
