What else is planned?
Library Labyrinth features amazing female and non-binary role models. What else can we do with these wonderful people and the wonderful drawings of them?
Bookmarks and postcards
We have some bookmarks to give away at conventions, and if you’ve seen us recently you may have picked on up. We have plans for postcards too. Although we haven’t yet decided precisely who will feature on them, it’s a fairly safe bet that Queen Nzinga will be one!
Postcards will be available to buy as add-ons during the Kickstarter, as well as afterwards. There may also be a downloadable PDF for those who wish to print their own bookmarks at home.
As promised, there will be an information booklet all about the characters — and the horrors too. It’s likely to be part of the game package on Kickstarter.
Workshops and teaching aids
The game itself is a great teaching aid! However, it might not be quite right for a classroom of 30 teenagers. Therefore we’re planning to create two things to help teacher or home-schoolers: a workshop version of the game, and a set of plans or aids.
We have funded some workshops through the Kickstarter, and will be applying for funding for more. Both Mill and Jess have experience of running workshops, and have put together a workshop menu here. Some are suitable for large classes, other for small groups. Some might involve children each taking a character or literary horror and then moving around the room to create teams and put the horrors back in the books.
We are also looking at lesson plans covering individual characters in the game. We’re working with teachers to make sure that they are quality teaching aids suitable for UK classrooms. Some would be more suitable for history classes, others for English classes. These will be fully downloadable and would probably be available in autumn 2022.
