World Book Day


Brighton & Hove Libraries


To deliver a photography workshop for writers in celebration of World Book Day.




In this creative workshop participants were looking at the interplay between photography and writing in the creation of character development.

Each person was given a camera and asked to think of the basics of a new character. They explored the local area of Brighton, taking photos as if they were their character. Back in the session we printed the images and used the visual stimulus to further develop their characters, finishing with a written story to accompany the images that was shared with the rest of the group.

It was wonderful to meet Daniel and the other participants. I’ve learnt such a lot, never having done any writing or photography before this. I really can’t thank you enough for your patience and kindness.
