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 Gardner, Paul Dowswell, Prentice and Weil, Jon Walter, Emma 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
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.
