Excite the heart. Inspire the mind. Celebrate the creativity.
“Timm guided the students through a wonderful mixture of modelled writing and hands on activities. Children were exclaiming, We are writers!”
~ Ms Weiler, Principal
Timm Holmes, author of The Mostly Made Up Adventures of Malcolm & Cooper, aims to excite the hearts, inspire the minds, and celebrate the creativity of primary and junior aged story tellers.
This 75 minute workshop visits schools, community groups, libraries, and birthday parties to present the core elements of story creation to children from Kindergarten to Grade 5. Working as a group they will be fully involved in bringing to life a story of their own design.
“Timm made the whole experience inviting for the children and they were all engaged. They all felt like they had contributed to the story, it was a ton of fun!”
~ Alicia Watson, RECE
Verbally guided through the decision making process, utilizing both written and visual elements, the workshop culminates in a theatrical reading of the children’s story that they have just created together!
Optional post-workshop activities can be shared and celebrated allowing the excitement of story creation to continue.
“They were inspired to keep writing long after the workshop was over. It was a pleasure to watch future authors share in Timm’s passion and excitement for story writing,”
~ Vickie Taylor, Kindergarten Teacher
