Summer Read Writing Workshops

Thank you to everyone who came along to the writing workshops as part of our Summer Read activities. Pictured above is local author and workshop leader Angela Hammond with participant Alex.

Here is an extract from Alex's story:
“A charm of healing in my backpack and an axe by my side, there is no way I can fail. As I arrive to the battle plains, I fear I am too late. Very few are still fighting, but even they are weak at best. I rummage through my pack yearning to feel the cold stone of the charm. I find it and start treating as many wounded soldiers as possible. Most call me their saviour, whilst others curse at me saying I give them back the pain. I don't give back pain, I can only heal.” Stay tuned for more stories.
