TimeHop- Young Adult Fiction Festival

On Thursday 7 July we launched a new festival of Young Adult Fiction, called TimeHop. Working in partnership with Storytellers Inc, we invited students from South Shore Academy and Unity Academy to join us for a day of fun and inspiring workshops and talks with six fantastic YA authors.

 Sally GardnerPaul DowswellPrentice and WeilJon WalterEmma Carroll & Lucy Saxon joined us for the day and engaged the students with workshops on Story-Building and writing. Students were also given the opportunity to ask the authors questions about writing

 The event was held in the gorgeous Grand Theatre and was brilliantly hosted by poet, Craig Bradley. We were also treated to a fantastic performance by Fylde Coast Youth Dance Company.

 Students from Unity Academy had been working with Soup Collective to produce a short film based on the novels of Prentice and Weil and this was premiered at the event.
