Join us for a story making session with Author, illustrator and current Children’s Writing Fellow NI Paul Howard, perfect for kids ages 4-8.
Paul will work with participants to craft an exciting new story for Paul’s wonderful characters, who children will recognise from books such as The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark.
