Learning How The Professionals Do It!
By the end of the summer we will have learned ALOT and created ALOT of material for our book! Now we will be ready to learn the technical aspects of publishing a book with the help of our friends at Ulster University. Here’s what’s happening:
Tuesday 27th August : Storyboarding Our Book
We are going to learn some professional techniques for structuring our book in a way which tells the story of the Coleraine Plantation in a way that reflects the spirit of our project AND connects with all those who will be reading our book. This is a fun, creative and challenging process which will put all our teamwork skills into action!
Pick-up from Focus on Family at 9:30am , returning at 4:30pm
Tuesday 3rd September and Tuesday 10th September : Design And Production Days
Based on our storyboard for our book, we are going to try our hand at professional page design (we’ll be using print-industry standard techniques!). By the end of these 2 days, we’ll have enough material to hand onto our printers to ensure the final design and printing of a book that reflects all the fabulous work we have done over the life of the project.
Pick-up from Focus on Family at 9:30am , returning at 4:30pm on each day.
