It has been a busy old summer so far. There’s been loads of editing (really good stuff) and teaching and meetings and writing too – over the past fortnight I’ve written two stories that I’m really happy with, or will be when they’re done at least. And I had the proofs for A Book of Beautiful Trees last week and – I know, I’d say this anyway – but it looks wonderful. So far so good, so busy, so happy.
And I’m very pleased to confirm that I’ll be running two summer writing projects for children aged 8-11 yrs. They will each happen over four days and over those four days we’ll find out how to generate good ideas, turn them into great stories (and all that that entails), write and illustrate them, and turn them into a book at the end. I’m really looking forward to these – they’re going to be great fun.
The first will be at Sheffield Central Children’s Library, where I’ve been working quite a bit over this past six months, and it will run for four days from August 11th to the 14th.
Places are very limited (so those attending get the most of my attention) so you will have to book quickly which you can do by contacting the library here: firstname.lastname@example.org. And you can drop me a line if you have any questions by using the form here. If you’d like to speak to the staff over the telephone here’s the number: 0114 2734734
The second will be at Bollington Library from August 18th to the 21st. Again, places are very limited – to book contact the staff here: email@example.com or you can call them: 01625 378266. I’d love to see you there. Do spread the word.
