Big thank you to Anita Lehmann who made it all happen and for all the lovely SCBWI members who came along dressed as characters from their books and donated so many fantastic raffle prizes.
Final Note - I did have a couple of adults who talked to me about wanting to write for children. If this is you then my advice is to just do it but also find out about writing groups and support local to you. Writing is a craft, just like any other and you need to practice and learn in order to improve. If you want to know more about SCBWI go to the website: SCBWI British Isles.
I'm donating loads of brilliant prizes for the raffle on February 9th. To find out all about it please visit my Competition Page.
Next stop is Altmore Infants. Can't wait to see what other amazing stories are ready and waiting to be released into the world.
Remember that Catching Words project is open for more schools in and around London to sign up to. It is cheap as chips and I highly recommend giving it a go. Find out more here: Catching Words Project
It's on Saturday 9 February at Cambridge Central Library running from 3.30pm until 5pm.
Completely FREE for all ages and a drop-in event. Throughout the afternoon there will be the chance to meet all kinds of authors including Andy Shepherd (The Boy Who Grew Dragons), there's a raffle and lots of fun activities.
Come along - it will be great!
Very soon it's my turn to judge some creative writing competition entries. Watch out - the power might go to my head!
Check my competition page for more details and GOOD LUCK!
The exhibition that was on during my visit was about Julia Donaldon's books and was completely amazing. It contained so much, including a huge whale, the witches broom, the squash and a squeeze house and a Gruffalo!
The walls of the centre are covered in signed, framed illustrations and the rooms are all story themed.
Honestly - it's a kind of heaven for a children's author! If you want to visit, or find out more, this is the link: Discover - Children's Story Centre
