Minds of all kinds can discover the wonder of words in a dyslexia-friendly writing workshop. 

Bookbugs and Dragontales in Timber Hill, is about to restart its classes lead by 26-year-old Poppy Stevens. 

Miss Stevens, from Watton, said: "My friends laughed at me when I started working in a bookshop because I am so dyslexic. 

"I was diagnosed when I was 21 so I struggled through school. I loved English and always felt inspired by words and poetry and wished I had a creative outlet."
