Story Makers Company at Leeds Beckett University

Last month I was delighted to join up with the Story Makers Company at Leeds Beckett University - a collective of creative practitioners who work with schools across Leeds and beyond to promote storytelling and encourage young authors to find their voices.

SMC held a creative event on 27th June where members showcased their excellent work to teachers. The event was a huge success - well done to all who were involved.

To celebrate the event, the SMC published the first edition of Story Maker Dialogues: an interactive journal collecting ideas and 'think pieces' to promote discussion about creative practices in school.

My article about developing creative writing in primary schools was included too. Click on the picture below to access the full journal.
