Cheltenham Prep was proud to host the Young Writers' Day in conjunction with the Cheltenham Literature Festival for the sixth consecutive year. Each year six schools from across Gloucestershire take part. For the first time this year we were joined by a Worcestershire school as well.
Anna Wilson, author of children's books including Monkey Madness, Summer's Shadow and The Great Kitten Cake Off, was the visiting author this year. She led the Young Writer's workshop and guided the children through three sessions of creative writing looks at character, dramatic openings and setting the atmosphere of the plot. Anna was on hand to help the children develop their writing and, as an author of over twenty books, to offer useful tips.
As always, the day was a great success.
