Level Up Your Writing


Class talk &creative writing 1 hour + class time Virtual: £100 | In person: get in touch to discuss fees


Videogames are stories. They have characters and worlds and obstacles to overcome. Stories and games are exciting for the same reason – you get to invent a character and go on an adventure through a fascinating world to solve a problem.


I introduce Emmy Levels Up with a reading from the book and short Q&A. As a class, we will create a character with strengths and weaknesses and put them in an unusual world. Then we will present them with increasingly hard challenges to overcome. After we’ve planned our own stories, I will leave your class with the task of turning their plan into a story. Teaching resources included.
