Author Stephen Cox visits Woodhouse

Dated: 25 January 2019

 
 
On Wednesday 16th of January Author Stephen Cox visited the Woodhouse Plus Creative Writing class to give a talk.
 
English student Lucy (and coincidentally, daughter of the author) reported on the visit.
 
"Stephen read an excerpt from his book Our Child Of The Stars and spoke about writing and publishing the book, giving the aspiring writers in the room valuable insight and advice into the process.
 
He answered our questions on a range of subjects, from finding your voice to how much do authors need to plan and world build in advance?
 
He led a creative writing activity that he uses, that aims to help writers figure out a starting point for a story. It involves creating two characters who can be summarised interestingly in one sentence each, who have some sort of dynamic between them, in a setting, where one (or both) want something and something that's standing in their way. This exercise led to interesting starts of stories that we shared with one another.
 
Stephen's talk was interesting and insightful, it helped us understand the writing world to a greater extent and his advice and writing tips were useful and I for one will be using them in the future."
 
We thank Stephen for taking the time to visit, encourage and enlighten our students.
 
 
 
Our Child Of The Stars: Molly and Gene thought their marriage was beyond saving. Then they were granted a miracle with the power to bring them back together. And with a secret that could tear them apart.
 
Our Child Of The Stars is available now on ebook and audiobook and available as a hardback on January 24th.
