    Take a spellbinding trip through literary London, home to countless authors and stories that have shaped the world. Through expert-led workshops, develop the tools and techniques needed to write in different genres and produce your own Creative Writing Portfolio. Take cues from the Harry Potter franchise and learn how novels can be re-imagined into films, plays, web-based media, and fan fiction.

    Meet writers and storytellers. Explore the real sites that gave life to Harry Potter locations like Diagon Alley, Gringotts, and the Brockdale bridge (the real-life Millennium Bridge!). Examine how stories for children detail real social issues like class segregation, gender differences, and bullying. Get to know the West End, the cultural hub of London, and see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the most awarded play in history. Discover the places and people that make London buzz with creativity. Taste local curry and fish and chips. Discuss your favorite books with local teens. Experience literary life outside of London too, taking trains on excursions to Oxford, Bath, and Lacock.
