This coming Saturday, 14th July 2018 sees the start of the Children’s Summer Reading Scheme. When the children come to my local Library to sign up for the scheme they will find several published authors on hand to talk to about anything and everything to do with writing books – how to go about it, how they are illustrated, how to stimulate your imagination and so on.
As well as answering questions on these and other book related topics I will be there giving short workshops on how to write Elfje poems and encouraging them to write their own. The event runs from 10.00am to 4.30pm. It is hoped that parents and others interested in the publishing process will also find the event helpful.
