Inkpots workshop with Laura Ellen Anderson

Come and join us for a very exciting author event!

We are just delighted that the Waterstone’s Children’s Author of the month for October, Laura Ellen Anderson, is visiting Inkpots on 18 November 2017.

The workshop will take place from 2 – 3.30pm at the Cyprus Hall (main hall) in Burgess Hill town centre.

Laura is an accomplished author and illustrator. Her latest book Amelia Fang and the Barbaric Ball is about a young vampire, her pumpkin Squashy and her friends, who altogether get up to a rip-roaring adventure. Comic fans may also know Laura’s work from The Phoenix magazine too.

The cost for this workshop package is £22 per child*.

The package includes:

  • Notes for the children before the workshop, giving information about Laura and her books, and some suggestions about having some questions for her. We have also done an interview with Laura based on ideas from some of the Inkpots children, so we’ll be sharing that too;
  • The workshop itself – Laura will be running some activities, giving advice and top tips and signing books;
  • We have commissioned some special cupcakes to celebrate the occasion!
  • Following on from the workshop, we will have some more activities which the children can do to continue with the creativity.
  • We will stay in contact with Laura so the children can send work to her.

Please note that we are restricting the numbers of children attending this event so that everyone gets a chance to talk to Laura, and it won’t be overwhelming for anyone.

Please contact Gill if you have any queries – but we do hope this is something of real interest to our young writers and illustrators.

* The charge for the workshop covers Laura’s fee, Gill’s time, cakes, insurance, hall hire costs and sundry materials.
