Overview
Can’t get enough of Hogwarts or Diagon Alley? Don’t think Katniss made the right decision in The Hunger Games? In this fan fiction workshop, students get a chance to make their favourite characters do things their way or write a new story in the same fictional world! They can alter plots, reincarnate characters and do plenty more. There’s only one rule: it needs to be convincing. (Note: Students must bring at least one book from their chosen series to refer to during class.)
