Walsall writer Serena Patel’s first Anisha Mistry detective book is just about to be published by Usborne - and she’s at Bournville BookFest to create new funny stories at this lively interactive workshop.

Get involved by choosing characters and actions from a heap of choices, until you have all created a completely new, possibly hilarious, story together.

Then it’s over to you, as everyone gets the chance to write their own unique plots.


Workshops are a wonderful way of spending time being creative together - but we do ask that adults buy tickets if they intend to take part, use materials and sit with their children. One ticket per participant please! Workshops classrooms are not suitable for children under 5.
