Experiment with writing styles and respond to the Library’s iconic spaces and collections in this creative writing workshop and tour.

Students will:

  • create their own text that reflects an emerging sense of personal style and voice

  • draw inspiration from a tour of the Library’s unique heritage spaces, including the World of the book exhibition that explores a world of ideas and imagination.
