A fairy detective agency solving a crime at Norwich Cathedral, and a pair of cheeky otters living on the Broads, were just two of the ideas at the first creative story writing workshop for children entering the Write on Norfolk competition.
The Write On Norfolk workshops at libraries are designed as fun and informal sessions to help children turn their inspiration into a piece of creative writing.
Community librarian Ben Miller, ran the first workshop, at Earlham Library last week, with the help of Nathan Gull, a UEA ambassador, and Anoushka Apelian, one of Norfolk Libraries' young Big Friendly Read volunteers.
He said: 'The children were simply fizzing with imagination and it was a real pleasure to work with them to give them ideas and encouragement about how to turn their inspiration into a piece of writing.'
