Overview
Every carrot has nightmares about being chopped into vegetable soup, being grated into carrot cake or freezing their tips off on the side of a snowman’s face. Normally, they don’t get much of a say, but here’s their chance! In this workshop, students will tell the stories of carrots who speak up to persuade the farmer, the snowman builder or the grocery shopper not to pick them! Who will be convincing enough to be left safely alone? The online version of this course will run for 8 group sessions, followed by a one-on-one session for each student to provide additional support as they revise and edit their story to be published.
