Creative Writing workshops across the partnership

creative writing session - Wallace Collection

Following the success of the Secondary School focussed Creative Writing sessions at the Wallace Collection comes the opportunity to take part in Creative Writing activities across the Museum Network partnership.

The Wallace Collection has been running the sessions since 2008 for school groups from the London boroughs and surrounding counties in addition to participating schools from Cirencester and Cheltenham.

Pupils are able to take part in a themed session led by a professional author. Topics include: Dramatic Monologues, Myths and Legends, Travel Writing: The Grand Tour and the new Citizenship and English cross-curricular session looking at Families in the collection.

Some students would not even attempt a creative writing task prior to this experience-I have seen them thrive today.” Teacher: South Camden

Now these hugely inspiring sessions are being run across the partner museums. Sessions at the Bowes Museum took place in 2009 with North-East playwrite Carina Rodney. Further sessions are being offered from September 2010 at The Bowes Museum, The Holburne Museum of Art, Compton Verney, Waddesdon Manor and sessions will contnue to be offered at the Wallace. All workshops are FREE (Groups will require a National Trust Group Pass for entry to Waddesdon Manor).
