Children’s Book Day Masterclass at the Norwich Writers’ Centre

WCN : NCW landscape colour

Good news, everyone. This year on International Children’s Book Day (2 April), I’ll be part participating in a full day of talks at the Norwich Writers’ Centre. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a wonderful venue in Norwich’s historic Dragon Hall.

I’m very honoured to be presenting workshops alongside author and illustrator, Nadine Kaadan, Alexander Gordon Smith (the Furnace series of books), and Bloomsbury editor, Helen Szirtes.

Each of us will talk about our work, our lives in the world of children’s literature, and offer instruction and advice on writing and getting published. We’ll also address our various areas of expertise. I’ll be doing my bit on poetry and novels for children, while Nadine and Alexander will cover picture books and young adult prose respectively. Helen will be speaking on what editors are looking for, and the publishing business in general.

If you’re interested in writing for young people, if you live in Norwich, or if you simply fancy a trip to that lovely city for a day of all things children’s literature, please join us!

You can book a place here.
