Sarah has appeared at many amazing literary events including Hay Festival (sunny), the Urdd Eisteddfod (rainy) Green Man (four seasons in one day), she’s enjoyed taking part in Bath Children’s Literature Festival and Cheltenham Festival and often works with the Stephen and George Charitable Trust – a brilliant organisation that promotes creative literacy to all ages.
Sarah has worked extensively in mainstream and special schools, both primary & secondary settings, youth clubs, summer schools and has run youth theatres and drama classes.
She has created workshops exploring Troll folk tales in a wild wood and followed Fairy Tale trails in a city playground. At Green Man Festival, participants made story strings and treasure boxes (after all, a good story is treasure). In Tredegar she helped a group of teenagers write poetry in the style of Dylan Thomas’ Do Not Go Gently into That Good Night after workshopping arguments on a mobile phone and a Year 6 class got to create some quite extraordinary characters based on people they knew using a range of drama and writing exercises.
Sarah is able to build workshops to support participants needs, interests and abilities – last year she wrote a series of workshops using drama and stories to support pupils transition from KS1 to KS2.
She can provide workshops for all ages and abilities, starting with the very, very young.
