A few weeks ago we visited the Fighting Words Creative Writing Centre for a crash course on how to write a novel. This programme was founded by the author Roddy Doyle and aims to enable children to write their own novel.
First of all the children had to figure out the password for the Mysterious Writing Den.
Then they brainstormed the structure of their novels which they had to deliver to the “Mean Editor.”
After this they worked in small groups to finish off their individual stories.
