WRITE A NOVEL IN 60 MINUTES!

Need a helping hand during the school shutdown? Join us every Wednesday morning for our famous Write a Novel in 60 Minutes workshop! Spark your kids’ creativity AND sneak in a cheeky dose of literacy – it’s win/win.

Why spend years agonising over your masterpiece when we can show you how to do it in an hour in this ridiculous whistle-stop tour of how stories work.

Stick your kid in front of the laptop or tablet guilt-free and we’ll not only entertain them but get them doing super cool creative and educational stuff while you crack on with drinking tea or answering emails or panic-reading Twitter (don’t do that last one). Or, you can join in too. Yes, it’s a workshop for kids, but plenty of adults have participated, enjoyed, and even created something that’s gone on to be Something.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A 60 MINUTE NOVEL WORKSHOP?

Every Monday, join us from 10-11am for a chilled, casual, ‘Journaling with WHQ’ webinar session on Crowdcast. Your host will guide you through the fundamentals of journaling, provide you with inspiration, pep, support, and advice, and set you up with an exercise or two to get you writing.

Share your ideas if you want, or just come and hang/chat with your fellow writers. It’s all good. Whether this is your first time attempting to keep a journal, or whether you’ve been diarising for years. ALL are welcome (we’re putting a “teens and up” rating on this one, so bring along your Gen-Zers too).

Anyone can journal. It’s great for your mental health; it’s great for your writing health; and it could be just the gentle little nudge of creativity you need right now…

I'M IN! GIMME THE DETAILS

Where? Crowdcast. No download needed, just log in. Links to be updated as they become available

When? Every Wednesday, 10-11am GMT (if you can’t watch live, you can still register for a place and watch playback at any time)

Who? Children aged 7 – 11. And also anyone else who fancies taking part. Smol kids need to be able to write pretty well on their own, unless you’re helping them. Teenagers can pretend they don’t want to join in but do it anyway. Adults also very welcome (just don’t expect to turn out your Proustian masterpiece in 60 minutes, eh?)

Why? Grown ups think writing novels takes years. We know that it only needs to take an hour. Join us for a whistle stop tour of how to build a perfect story from the ground up.

How much? FREE!

Anything else? Bring paper and pens. Googly eyes and glitter optional (but recommended)

My kids loved your writing workshop, thank you! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My son is seven and has had his head down at the keyboard ever since. Have never seen him so committed and inspired by anything before!  It’s completely his own work and he loved writing it.
