Storywriting School to hold workshop on writing for kids – The Manila Times

April 28, 2019

THE Storywriting School of the Sunshine Place: Senior Recreation Center is inviting aspiring writers to participate in its workshop on writing stories for children next month.

Sunshine Place describes the Storywriting School as a learning community for people who dream of writing great stories, but end up experincing writer’s block. It aims to give participants the tools to get their stories written and see their ideas through.

The workshop offers participants a six-hour crash course on writing stories for a young audience. They will receive lectures about the audiences covered by children’s literature, and learn story design principles and exercises that will help them write children’s stories in no time.

Participants are expected to leave the workshop with guidelines on dealing with both children and adult readers, tools to help in determining what language is right for children, and a method that will help them write despite their busy schedules.

The workshop will be conducted by Palanca award-winning children’s book author Joachim Emilio “Joem” Antonio. His stories, Ang Ampalaya sa Pinggan ni Peepo (The Bitter Gourd on Peepo’s Plate) and Sa Tapat ng Tindahan ni Mang Teban (In Front of Mr. Teban’s Store), both won second prize in the Maikling Kuwentong Pambata (Short Story for Children) category of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature in 2007 and 2011, respectively, and were subsequently published under Lampara Books.

Antonio is a believer in the “writing by design” approach, in which the writer is trained to anticipate and predict a reader’s probable response to the text based on the writer’s understanding of reality and language. The goal of his workshop is for participants to be able to put their ideas on paper and see how the choice and organization of language fulfills their objective.
