Visit to The John Roan

    john roan author visit


    On the 8th December we made our second stop on our Book Tour at The John Roan School. I had a great time talking to the Year 7s and Year 8s there about WW, which included fielding some… let’s say, unusual questions like “What laptop do you use when you write?” and “Do you have to go to a specific place to write, like JK Rowling goes to Hogwarts?”

    I also had the privilege of answering questions about writing for a lot of budding creative writers – it was a really pleasant surprise to see so many students who were interested in writing and wanted actual advice about how to go about it. Angie Smith, the Literary Co-ordinator at John Roan, has my eternal gratitude for inviting me to talk to the students, and I am already looking forward to going back during Book Week to spend a day with the Year 10s.

    My gratitude also for the amazing article Angie wrote about my visit and how it inspired the Year 7s and 8s. Click here to read the article.
