Sam Thompson is a Booker-longlisted author who has just published Wolfstongue (Little island). In these videos he gives a series of workshops aimed at writers who are aged between 8 and 12.

In each talk, Sam gives examples from his book and suggests how young writers can use them in their own stories, in an age-appropriate way.

Join us at 12.30pm each day from June 1st—6th for a new episode, exploring topics such as how to keep a reader’s attention, describing a place or setting, and deciding which character should tell the story.

We hope you enjoy these bite-sized classes, and that they inspire you to pick up a pen or the lap top and create your own story!
