The children will begin the day in the British Museum, where they will be inspired by an artefact; they will proceed to Senate House Library where the writing workshops will take place; and in the afternoon they will make their way to UCL where some of  the writing will be performed alongside that of novelists Adam Thirlwell and Will Self.
