Swapna offers creative and flexible workshops designed to inspire children by demystifying the writing process, showing them how much fun creating stories can be. Her workshops are aimed at six to ten year olds and there is flexibility in content and length to fit the ages of the pupils and the requirements of the event.

Creating Characters and Stories
Based on characters from the Dave Pigeon books, Swapna facilitates a character design workshop, highlighting the importance of imagination and creativity. The children go on to develop ideas as a group, with input from all and an emphasis on how to write stories from beginning to end, highlighting the importance of unique characters and collaborative work.

Please note that Swapna is based in New Zealand but may be available for events in the UK, in collaboration with illustrator Sheena Dempsey. For further information and to book an event for your school, library or festival, please contact
