We wish to thank THE ROSALIND HICKS CHARITABLE TRUST and THE ELMGRANT TRUST for funding Red Herrings and Remedies as part of this year’s International Agatha Christie Festival.
Pupils at Shiphay Learning Academy at the Finale of the Red Herrings writing week
For five full days during Festival week The Writers’ Block delivered a pop-up series of highly imaginative workshops at Torre Abbey, Torquay, designed for whole classes of schoolchildren drawn from Torbay schools and their teachers Years 4-6.
‘Red Herrings and Remedies’ inspired even the most reluctant writers to find their style and engaged children in exploring the Potent Plants garden outdoors at Torre Abbey alongside expertly facilitated writing teaching. The Writers' Block also offered CPD for teachers at primary school level across Torbay
and additional workshops designed for young people with specialised needs.
