After a short writing warm up, Cake For the Gestapo author Jacqueline King will help you to write the bare bones of a WW2 story. After showing you a few WW2 artefacts, such as Red Cross Messages and a crystal radio, she hopes you will enjoy creating a character in a Jersey setting, a villain or a hero!
You’ll look at characterisation, action, reaction and pace and Jacqueline will discuss her own experience of the process of editing and publishing
By the end of the session, Jacqueline hopes you will feel that your fictional character has become as real to you as your friends – or enemies – and that you want to tell their story.
Bring paper and pencils or pens!
