A series of immersive storytelling workshops to learn the components of writing and narratives

In your classroom

“Ignite the spark of creativity.”

Learn writing and narrative skills in fun, creative ways

In Unpacking Stories, students use the presenter’s mysterious pack full of objects as inspiration for creating characters and crafting adventures. They will explore the essential ingredients for story writing, and begin plotting out incredible adventures.

In Personanimality, students investigate animals’ personalities, and use this to think about the animals that shape who they are – their “Secret Beast”. Through literary and poetry techniques, they’ll craft a tale of their Secret Beast, and develop character building skills that can be applied in future storytelling.

While these workshops can be undertaken separately, booking both opportunities will provide a more well-rounded creative writing experience.

Presented by Sydney Opera House and Sydney Story Factory.
