Writing Workshop with Award Winning YA Author, Eliza Baker
Posted 28/02/2019 05:17PM

For the last two months, a committed group of Grade 3 students has been coming to the Library every lunchtime to write. Their goal was to write a book and have it published as UNIS Hanoi authors. The students – Milly, Mirabel, Ebba, Liv, Costanza, Thao and Mona have written away in a corner of the Library showing complete and utter determination to finish their story.

Imagine their good fortune in having Eliza Baker visit Hanoi this week and offer to work with them on developing their story writing! Eighteen-year-old Eliza, from Melbourne, Australia won her first writing competition when she was just 11 and now, as she embarks on her university studies, has journalism clearly at the forefront of her plans. She has written numerous stories and won many competitions so her youthful excitement and engagement with the writing process was a very unique opportunity for our young writers.

The students spent a morning working with Eliza, developing their narrative technique and understanding the importance of planning their writing using story arcs. They worked on developing their characters and understanding the importance of backfill before reaching the climax of the story. It was a unique experience for these enthusiastic young writers and one that will stay with them for a very long time as they continue to develop their own confidence and style as writers. The Elementary School students and teachers are all very excited to see the book produced by this enthusiastic and creative group.
