This week we were fortunate enough to have a visit from a successful author, Joseph Delaney, who spent time with our year 5 and 6 children talking about his various books (the Spooks and Arena 13 series), characters, writing processes, editing and what it takes to get published. He even read a few excerpts from his stories! Discussion then moved to how perseverance is key to being successful as an author, which applies to other aspects of life as well, and even took the time to answer many questions from the children.
We hope his time spent here will inspire any budding writers/authors in school and help them understand more about what it takes to become an author.
