In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
The series kicks off with a bitesize masterclass from Dave Rudden. Author of Knights of the Borrowed Dark series, Dave shows us how to create a compelling main character.
