Twitter Tales Workshop

Whole Class Creative Workshop with writer Jo Hall (remote workshop)

Write a story over the course of a week with storyteller and writer Jo Hall. This is an activity the whole class can join in with. Using twitter each day create a dynamic and original story complete with drawings. You create your own characters and drive the story with your ideas. This can be done with nursery classes upwards. It is an ideal project for children aged 4-8. This is a workshop done online, so great for schools outside Scotland.

Working over 5 days you will use 160 characters each day to make part of the story …but it is amazing what can be packed in a few short sentences.

This is an ideal way to share your story as it is created, with parents and other schools around the world.

Don’t worry if you are not on twitter. Jo can share the whole story on her twitter account.

When the story is complete you have the option of linking up with Jo online for a quick chat …and she’ll read your story back to you. As well as sharing an extra JoJo Gnome story with you.
