Story Seeds Writing Project

Way back in September, 4th Class had the opportunity to take part in an exciting writing project! Story Seeds is a joint project of Fighting Words, the
creative writing organisation, and the Garda Community Engagement Unit based at Pearse Street Garda Station. They had a Zoom workshop with Sara, who helped to shape all of their ideas into the first chapter of a story called Rocky’s Way Home. They discussed what they like about their neighbourhood and developed a main character, Rocky the dog. Throughout the workshop, professional illustrator Philip Elliot drew pictures to further bring their ideas to life! When the chapter was complete, they considered questions for the next chapter and sent them on to the next school in the project. 

Last week they finally got real copies of the book they authored! The story 4th class started was continued on by three more schools, and they are  delighted with the results!
