Association for Heritage Interpretation workshop: Inspire, excite, amuse and amaze! Writing for children and families

Tuesday 29th April 2014

Staunton Country Park, Havant

From The Hobbit to Harry Potter, Matilda to Monsters Inc, the appeal of popular fiction spans the generations. This one-day workshop will explore copywriting techniques that enable heritage sites, museums and attractions to reach out to visitors of all ages:

• How to ‘hook’ a family’s interest, no matter how small the budget or how ‘dry’ the subject.

• Writing text that children and adults want to read

• Tips for targeting different ages ranges

• Ways to encourage inter-generational conversations

• Family-friendly text that works for different media (audio, apps, etc)
