Minecrafting a Story Workshop
What could be better than computer games and writing? When it comes to Minecraft, they go together perfectly.
I have heaps of fun at my Minecraft workshops and the kids are always excited to write. This month at Liverpool and Cannes Hill Library both sessions were fully booked and a hopeful group of waiting list kids stood at the door.
I’m still amazed at the consistent quality of the work produced despite the range of ages (once it was from 7 to 14) and range of ability. I think it’s because the Minecraft world is a comfort zone and they feel very confident writing about something they know and love.
The Minecraft world has everything a story needs and my young writers create some amazing word magic on their crafting tables.
