Could your sense of smell spark an idea for a story?

Lisa Thompson will talk about her novels The Goldfish Boy and The Light Jar and her early years as a budding writer. She’ll talk briefly about her background in radio production and how using your senses is a great way to inspire ideas. Using a range of props covering sight, hearing, touch and smell, the children will try to come up with the beginnings of their own stories followed by 15-20 minutes of concentrated writing before they have a chance to read their work aloud..
