I was asked to present a workshop for young children, older children and their parents and grandparents, inspired by Geraldine McCaughrean’s upcoming novel, Peter Pan in Scarlet, which is set in Margate.  Once again I travelled back to Planet Thanet, with my suitcase of objects to facilitate a writing workshop with the Margate Theatre Royal youth group.  Armed with Margatian postcards, letters, envelopes and small writing journals I asked those taking part to be inspired by the contents of the suitcases, and write their own fictional tale or correspondence.
