“Closer and closer it came, it was getting bigger and bigger, soon it filled the sky above our school. Then, time seemed to halt. Everything went blank… computers, clocks, mobiles… We were trapped… Men in space suits descended, were they even human… and herded everyone into the hall… Everyone except our secret club, we were hiding in a dusty corner of the library… footsteps were approaching…”

A potential disaster and a potential triumph - let’s see where it takes us!

Every day we face challenges and overcome obstacles, as individuals and as a society. Against all obstacles, we beat the odd. We survive and thrive. Can you face the challenge of penning a survival story in just 90 short minutes? Are you up to the challenge of finding your character, often someone who is not the hero type, an underdog? Can you give him or her a test after test, a Goliath to beat? Getting within a hair width of a breaking point can your hero eventually become triumphant? Using the Maslow's hierarchy of needs and various writing techniques, role play and drama games we will prevent a disaster and triumphantly write an amazing short story!
