Robin Price was commissioned by Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust to lead 18 creative writing workshops at themed around The Tempest, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Richard III. Robin devised materials where pupils invent their own settings for their version of the play and populate it with characters based on Shakespeare’s protagonists. They then write their own piece using a mixture of their own language and Shakespearean words and phrases. The result is an original piece inspired by Shakespeare’s characters and themes – it’s a great way to make Shakespeare accessible. Your pupils will have fun getting creative whilst simultaneously exploring the themes of the play. Each session ends with students reading out their work on the microphone – which is great for confidence building.
Workshops for Y2 to Y9 are available.
Shakespeare is one of the 50 writing themes that you can choose when you bring Creative Writing Club to your school.
