Hello world,

We are a group of students who study Creative Writing at Bath Spa University. We are hosting a street event at this years Bath Literary Festival on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of March. On the 1st you can find us at Green Park Station where we might ask for a moment of you time. Then on the 2nd we may be in SouthGate or wandering around the city centre trying to find you!

Our event is a story chain. A story chain which we would like everyone to get involved with, people of all ages and interests. You don't have to be a writer to help us finish our story.

Our story is about a Penguin who travels from the South pole to the North pole. This is why we have named the event 'The Upside-Down Penguin Adventure'. A name is yet to be determined for our character, or we may leave that up to you to decide.

We want you to write a sentence or maybe just a word to add to our story, so that our penguin can travel all the way up to North pole. Will our Penguin visit Spain on his way? Will our Penguin be in Bath during the Literary festival? What he finds, where he travels... it is all up to you! 

Decide the fate of our travelling Penguin!

We'll be at Green Park Station from 2pm to 5pm Saturday 1st March, wearing Bath Lit Fest T-shirts and probably calling out for everyone to join in.

We hope to see you there,
The Upside-Down Penguin Adventure Team
