Supporting creative writing at the Bookchat Roadshow!


The Bookchat Roadshow celebrates children’s creativity and inspires parents and carers with ideas to support their child’s reading for pleasure and creative writing.

inkpots.smallWith this mind, I’m pleased to welcome Inkpots Writing Workshops who are participating in the Roadshow and will be on hand to give advice about encouraging creativity through stories. Founded by Gill Pawley, Inkpots Writing Workshops offer children age 7 – 12 the opportunity to express themselves through words and pictures in a secure, supportive environment. Their fun workshops are open to all young writers and artists; they provide after school clubs, workshops and specially-designed sessions for schools. New for 2017 is their online club, Inkpots Inc.  Gill presented on creative writing at the inaugural event last October and will be exhibiting at this event:

“Inkpots is delighted to take part in the second Bookchat Roadshow. It’s a real pleasure to support this initiative to encourage children’s reading and writing”
