The pack, which is available to download from the Forelock Books website, will help budding writers create compelling storylines, characters and tantilising titles, but will also help them to map events, develop links and write a synopsis.
“I created the Storytellers’ Activity Pack after being asked by a countless number of parents if there was something available that would help their children formulate their ideas and encourage them to write their own stories,” said Michelle Charman from Forelock Books.
“Many of us document our lives through stories on social media, but this is not the same as storytelling. Good storytellers create adventures, develop characters and link events; they evoke emotions and care about the reader. Good storytellers are critical in today’s world.”
The Forelock Books Storytellers’ Activity Pack is supported by actors James Bolam and Susan Jameson, stars of Cbeebies “Grandpa in my Pocket’. Both James and Susan will be contributing by providing creative hints and tips in the form of video clips and Q&A sessions on Forelock Books’ social media pages.
The Forelock Books Storytellers’ Activity Pack is available to download from www.forelock-books.co.uk, priced at £2.49
