Planning adventure stories – Emma will talk about the key components of story planning, encouraging children to fill in story plans that can be turned into adventure stories with a strong environmental message. As part of the workshop, Emma will also talk about her own experiences in publishing and the process of getting published herself. She’ll talk through where her ideas come from, the editorial process and the excitement of working with an illustrator.
THE PLAYDATE ADVENTURES is a series of chapter books aimed at 5-8-year olds. In each story we join three best friends and their cat Thunder on a playdate, where the magic of their imaginations makes their pretend adventure come to life. The adventures take them on unforgettable journeys that teach them not only about the value of friendship, but also about the environmental issues facing our planet today.
