Shoo Rayner's creative writing and drawing workshops (suitable for years 2-7)
Shoo does many writing and illustration workshops in schools. In his workshops he talks about his Dragon Gold and Dragon White stories, discussing the ideas and how the stories came about. As an illustrator Shoo finds the visual process in story planning very important and needs to draw the characters before he writes and finds this process appeals especially to reluctant readers and writers in the schools. Shoo performs parts of the story to give a flavour of the book and then discusses the problems of how to draw dragons - showing the children, step-by-step how to draw dragons for themselves. Then he finishes up with a Q&A about writing, illustrating and about being an author.
