Write For The Doctor’s Life!
Are you part of the next generation of Doctor Who writers? You might be but you don’t even know it yet. There may possibly be the best Doctor Who story ever written waiting somewhere inside your clever old brain and all it needs is that little extra push to let it be realised.
But first, it may be an idea to get some hints and tips to see just what it takes to become not only a writer but more specifically a Doctor Who writer!
The Winchester Festival taking place in July 2012 will be holding a very special workshop for any young people interested in writing, you’ll be able to meet some very prolific Doctor Who writers and take part in their workshops, sounds fantastic doesn’t it?
Nicholas Briggs (voice of the Daleks and Executive Producer at Big Finish), Peter Anghelides (writer of 2008′s Tenth Doctor audio adventure Pest Control as well as many novels), Simon Guerrier (author of 2009 Doctor Who novel The Slitheen Excursion) and J.T. Colgan (author of upcoming 2012 Doctor Who novel Dark Horizons) will all be appearing to talk about their different writing styles and to let you have a go yourself!
There will be a morning slot more suitable for those of you aged between 9 and 11 and an afternoon slot more suited to older students from 11 to 14. Of course, we’re certain you won’t get thrown out if you’re age varies a little but it might be best to check.
The Doctor Who creative writing workshops will take place during the Winchester Festival on Saturday 7th July and will take place between 9am and 4pm.
