Participants will then discuss different types of stories that exist and the author will lead a discussion to help participants decide on the kind of book they would like to produce with colour as the theme. Between sessions, participants will receive their complimentary copy of the e-book Maybe Colours and using the book as inspiration, they will create their own book about colour. During Part 2, participants will discuss and share their work and the author will discuss the sequel to the book.
