Our workshop for children at Urban Solace had little wordsmiths enthralling us with their creations. They required some nudging initially, but when sparked with writing prompts and the company of each other, they came up with not only some engrossing stories but also beautiful illustrations.
Through activities and writing exercises, they learnt more about story ideation, plot, narration and dialogues. We saw creativity at its best as they let their thoughts and imagination soar unrestrained. By the end of the session, their eyes sparkled at the thought of all the magic they could create with words. And as facilitators, that is precisely what we set out to achieve – kindle in them the love for writing.
