Writing workshops

One of the main purposes of the workshop is to show young people that writing can be fun and that they can be successful at it. Students will create a piece of descriptive writing based on an exciting sporting moment. As well as writing, the students will be moving, cutting, gluing, competing, acting and speaking!

Depending on the level of the students, writing skills covered include:

  • types of sentences
  • dialogue
  • simile and metaphor
  • point of view
  • editing

“Oh my gosh! Get hold of David Riley, The Reading Warrior. He runs amazing workshops. His books are very popular here and we also want to get him down for PL and workshops.” Liz Minogue. HOD English. Gisborne Boys’ High School

“David is very easy to listen to and follow and this is indicated in the feedback we have had from children and staff.  David is a lovely person and it was a pleasure to meet with him and work with him.  He has amazing ideas to share which we are all now using in our classrooms. David did a fabulous job with the children and worked with them at their level. We would like to get him back to follow on with what we have started with writing in our school.” St Patrick’s Primary School. Invercargill

“The best part of today was working as a group to write some good words and sentences. Also it was super cool and funny when we had to do a short play acting out the rugby game and what the players were thinking.” Brooke. Opaheke School
