Big Stories with Elen Caldecott

Join this writing workshop for an exciting opportunity to see your work in print. Elen Caldecott is a children’s author, a lecturer in Creative Writing and a Patron of Wrexham’s Carnival of Words. In this 90-minute session, she will encourage participants to begin writing a poem or story inspired by Wrexham and its wider community. From this beginning, your piece will be edited (with your approval!) for inclusion in a printed anthology. All participants will receive one free copy of the finished collection.

To take part, participants should have access to an email address and a computer with a connection to the internet. For children, that email should belong to a parent or carer. Elen will contact you before and after the event, by email, to explain how the editing process will work. By signing up for this event, you are consenting to being contacted.

This event is supported by Lancaster University.
