Penarth Literary Festival: Create Your Own Spy Workshop with Sarah Todd Taylor

Learn how to create your own code-cracking spy extraordinaire in this top-secret writing workshop with author Sarah Todd Taylor! Based around the codes and ciphers in Sarah’s Alice Éclair mystery series, you’ll get to come up with your own spy (complete with codename), decide where their investigations will take place and how they’ll track down the villians! Sarah will even share the history of some of the world’s oldest codes and ciphers, which your spy might use to pass on their own secret messages and save the day!

Sarah Todd Taylor was brought up in Yorkshire and Wales surrounded by books and casts. She discovered the theatre when she was a teenager and was instantly hooked, appearing in over 20 musicals in her hometown as well as helping out backstage. In her spare time she likes to sing opera in wonderful dresses, and she shares her home with her fabulous husband, two guinea pigs and a hamster.

This workshop is aimed at children aged 7-12 years old.
