In our latest author visit, students from years 8 and 9 welcomed writer Ruth Browell to the Academy. These students participated in a writing masterclass, benefitting from the experience and inside knowledge of the author who has recently published the first in a new series of fantasy books ‘The Carfax Chronicles: Earthcry’.
Students were treated to a reading of the book and listened to an interview which gave insight into the author’s inspirations and gave away some top tips for budding new writers. Students were then given the opportunity to write their own story beginning and were privileged to have the author deliver them aloud to the rest of the group.
Student have gained much from the experience and we look forward to the next book in the series being released next year.
