At Didsbury Arts Festival
19th June: Harrytown RC School in Stockport. I met the students from Harrytown’s Creative Writing Group and spoke about how I wrote The Jewel Keepers. Next term I am going back to see them again and we are going to do some creative writing together. They were incredibly enthusiastic and a very talented group of young people. It was great! We decided that like art, music and drama, there should be a GSCE option for creative Writing. Well why not?
