Back To School
One of my multiple roles as a writer is as a Creative Practitioner with Creative Partnerships.
CP is part of the Government strategy to encourage children to learn in a creative way.
It aims to bring in professionals working in creative fields and help raise aspirations.
I have been working in a school in Liverpool with a group of delightful seven and eight-year-olds, helping them create a school magazine.
Today the children interviewed each other to produce some entertaining author profiles and on Thursday I am taking them on a tour of my old newspaper, The Liverpool Echo.
Who knows I may have inspired a future Kate Adie or Jeremy Paxman.
