Writing from Life with Jion Sheibani (ages 12–18)

Fri 7 April 2023 @ 19 h 00 - 21 h 00

Join us for a Teen Night dedicated to creative writing. Join author Jion Sheibani and fellow aspiring writers in a relaxed and creative setting where you can share your ideas, get feedback and work on your technique. We’ll focus on letting the conscious go and work on fun creative exercises the surrealists used to do to explore how dreaming and day dreaming impact the creative process.


Light refreshments will be provided by the Library.


About Jion Sheibani: Jion is the author and illustrator of the young adult novel The Silver Chain, as well as the picture book Lily & The Polar Bears and The Worries young fiction series. She grew up in Brighton and now lives in Paris with her family. She’s a self-taught illustrator and studied English literature at Oxford University. When she moved to Paris, she taught English to students at Sciences Po and ENSAE universities before opening her own language school for children, Anglofun. Now, she mainly draws and writes in her garden studio. As well as picture books and young fiction, she also writes and illustrates for older readers. Find out more about Jion and her work here.
