25 Tys travelled to Belfast on September 21st 2017 to participate in a creative writing workshop hosted by Fighting Words. This was the very first time a school from Donegal had ever been invited to participate and it was indeed a very worthwhile experience.
Students collaborated to create two main characters and a setting. From here they wrote the first chapter of a story together. Students were then divided into groups and they completed chapter 2. They then shared their stories together in a very relaxed setting; sitting in a circle on beanbags!
An illustrator was also present and she drew the characters the students created this really brought them to life for the participants. Students then received a bound copy of their stories.
The feedback from students was highly positive and we would like to thank Hannah Armstrong and her team for facilitating this event.
