I visited St Katherine's School today as part of the Bath Children's Literature Festival. I had a very enjoyable visit, speaking with 30+ year 8 and 9. Everyone participated in the writing exercises (maybe tempted by the prize of Justin Somper's Vampirates trilogy, and a pristine copy of BEAST) I love it when students join in, ask questions and listen. Thanks for a great visit!
And tomorrow is the West Oxfordshire Book Award, for which BERSERK has been shortlisted. Hurrah!
I'll be at Bath Children's Literature Festival on Monday 22nd Sept at 6pm. The event is called Writing for Young People and features myself, Sally Nicholls, Julia Green and Nicola Davies. It's in the Guildhall and costs £5... Welcome to the Bath Festival of Children's Literature
