Great opportunities for schools and young people with workshops, competitions, interactive activities and teaching sessions.
Make Doves Not War! Competition
This competition, to commemorate the First World War and celebrate and promote peace, was launched at our writing festival with authors Cathy Cassidy and Jonathon Mayhew. We are offering workshops with writers coming in to schools to support pupils in preparing entries to the competition.
The George Garrett Archive project:
This is a major Heritage Lottery Project we have been running about a writer and merchant Seaman from Liverpool. Details can be found at www.georgegarrettarchive.co.uk. We have a unique installation (see pic) designed by LJMU students, which we want to use in conjunction with the archive as a teaching tool and learning resource for schools. The learning would cover writing, literacy and social history. Schools will be able to book to visit the installation and the archive and take part in a teaching session with education pack provided.
The Liverpool Virtual Book Fair:
This event, organised as part of the International Business festival, is designed to explore the medium of electronic publishing and writing for digital platforms. It will feature a children’s corner, with interactive activities and children’s authors. More information is available here.
