During the month of April, our Children’s Storytelling Caravan for 5- to 13-year-olds travels all around Trinidad and Tobago, as children get to share their wonderful stories with us.  

During the Caravan, dynamic, experienced storytellers and trained teams from the NGC Children’s Bocas Lit Fest discuss ideas for stories with children, guiding them through the basics of exposition towards character development, observation of the environment, personal, social and community relationships, unleashing and guiding the children’s creativity and inspiring them to value self-expression through the written word.

The stories the children create are illustrated and published annually in a colouring book and in the Sunday Junior Express. Contact us at storytelling@bocaslitfest.com to order copies of the Children’s Storytelling Caravan Book 5, or to request a copy for a child who participated in the 2016 storytelling caravan. 

Each session is two hours long. Pre-registration required.
