FREE | Writing Workshop with Children’s Author Emily Ilett

October 14, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

Writing Workshop with Children’s Author Emily Ilett
Do you enjoy being creative? Does the natural world inspire you to write your own stories or draw from your imagination?

About this event

Come and join our writing workshop with author Emily Ilett. Emily will be telling us all about how nature inspires her writing and how her research led her to write about endangered creatures in Scotland in her book The Girl Who Lost Her Shadow. This workshop will involve some fun writing exercises and we will be encouraging you all to get writing or drawing during the session so bring along some paper and a pen. Emily Ilett is an award-winning children’s writer based in Glasgow. Her debut children’s book The Girl Who Lost Her Shadow was published in 2019 and won the Kelpies Prize 2017. She has lots of experience of working with young writers and her sessions are interactive, informative and fun!

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
