“Thank you for joining us! The children were captivated by the story and now the school is a buzz of children reading Max and Luchia’s adventure. They can’t put it down!”
Are you looking for a fun and easy way to encourage students with creative writing and reading? If so, Kevin and Sera want to help you.
Together, we provide a workshop within schools for children aged 5+ years, in a group of approximately 30 in number. We have also created a You tube channel with online learning suggestions, based on reading and creating stories.
We are both graduates of the University of Worcester in Creative Writing. Our book ‘Max & Luchia, The Game Makers,’ was published in 2018 and we have been taking it into schools in Worcestershire as a means to engage young people with reading, illustrating and writing.
Our passionate aim is to reach readers of all abilities. Kevin and Sera have both experienced the difficulty of overcoming dyslexia, which is touched on in the Max & Luchia story.
The workshop takes young people on a journey into their own powerful imagination. In the workshop, we look at the different ways a person can create a work of fiction [writing, acting and illustrating] and how a person can develop their own individual skills for regular reading and writing. Workshop sessions are between an hour and an hour and 30 minutes long. Students would need pencils, pens and paper. We have small props and can work in any [appropriate to group numbers] size space with or without tables.
We have a passion for learning and a love of storytelling. We would like very much to share this with others to motivate them too.
If you wish to see a copy of other school’s testimonies and evidence of our qualification, please don’t hesitate to email Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.kevinbrooke.com. We have already visited a number of local schools including Northwick Manor Primary School, Suckley Primary School, Westlands First School, St Nicholas CofE School and Whittington CofE Primary School.
