Elaine is a full time writer. However, she was a teacher and has had many years of experience presenting literature to children in classrooms. Because of this experience she is able to offer stimulating workshops, author talks and storytelling sessions for children of Primary and Lower Secondary age and professional development for adults.
Sessions can be tailored to the individual needs of your class or group and can cover a range of topics.
Using some of her own early drafts with the students, Elaine Forrestal will demonstrate the drafting process, encourage the students to re-draft their own work and comment on their developing writing.
Other aspects of writing such as how to make your ideas work on paper; which competitions to enter or publishers to approach; and how best to present your work will also be covered.
