Creative Young People`s Storyteller, ROAR
Deadline: Thu 14 Jan 2021
We are looking for a Creative Storyteller to work with young people in Thurcroft to create new mythologies around Thor, the Guardian Troll of Thurcroft.

We are looking for a story teller who can stimulate and encourage flights of fancy and imagination in young people, and enable their ideas to become coherent short stories. Thor will need to have an agreed personality that runs through all the stories, that can be built on and adapted.

There will be resources for 8 x two hour workshops with 8-10 participants. We recognise that quality work will take more than 1 session, but would like as many young people to be able to engage as possible. We would expect there to be between 2-4 groups benefiting, including schools and youth clubs. There will be support to identify and arrange the groups.

The output will be a series of at least 10 complete short stories. While we hope for face to face delivery, we recognise this may not be possible. You will need to address this possibility in your application, and offer alternative methods of engagement.

We are also working with an illustrator to animate the stories for digital and physical distribution.

Total fee of £1,600 available.
