Exploring and Sharing Our Voice: Autobiographical Writing for Young People

This creative workshop will allow young people to write and perform their own stories.

After some icebreakers and introduction games, the young people will share moments in their lives that were most memorable. In groups, they can share their stories using photos, props, or words alone. Following this oral sharing, the young people will be given time to write their stories down to make 100-word works of flash nonfiction. Throughout their writing time they will receive a series of simple prompts to encourage them to pull out every detail of their story.

Once their works are written they will be split into small groups to explore how they can perform their work for others – exploring tools for emphasising aspects of a story with their bodies and voices and how to ensure an audience is held until the end. At the end of the session, those students who wish, will perform their autobiographical works before the class.
