Join Mark Ballabon, published YA author, philosopher and environmentalist for an exciting and immersive Creative Writing workshop for teens.

This workshop begins uniquely with the encouragement to try, to be bold, to imagine, to explore and delight in things you thought you’d never be able to do, but actually can! The session


will be based around concepts, styles and key writing techniques and will use examples from Mark’s YA novel, Home: My Life in the Universe. It will inspire teens and young people to not only discover new skills and technical abilities, but to fire up their own deep imagination and learn how to put into words, sentences and concepts, their own original stories.


Mark has been touring schools across the UK and overseas with his interactive workshops, meeting with thousands of students. His Creative Writing workshop is always a firm favourite with the pupils, receiving outstanding reviews from teachers and librarians who are often compelled to participate.

DATE: 13/07/24

TIME: 10am – 12pm

VENUE: Community Centre
