In January 2023 I ran a half-day CPD workshop for the Glasgow Secondary School librarians at the Mitchell Library on supporting their pupils with creative writing. We looked at getting ideas for stories through pictures, music, fan-fiction and dreams; story structure and story arc; enhancing stories through characterisation and narrative voice; and supporting EAL pupils and those with additional needs.

We had lots of fun with practical activities and discussions – you can have a look at some of the photos from the workshop here:
