The #foundfiction writing workshop was so empowering, so inspiring but so chilled at the same time. My students just listened in awe. The following week I told pupils we would use the ideas generated in the workshop to write our own short stories. They set to it with relish – what a treat! We're definitely looking forward to working with #foundfiction again.
