On 20 March I talked to Creative Writing students at Westminster College. There was a lively discussion about 'creative entrepreneurs' which I put into a blog post.
On 1 May 2013, I gave a talk :PAINTED WORDS: constructing a picture book
In this talk I covered: tone, pace and rhythm; graphic story telling and the reader; voice, typeface and visual sub plots.
This took place at Homerton College, Cambridge.
On 21 May I helped 180 year 8 pupils create picture books for Reception pupils. You can see pages of three of their books in my 19 August and 2 September blog posts.
Look at my 30 June blog post to see photos of the SHOUTSOUTH Festival I took part in on 13 June- 15 June at London Southbank University
On Saturday 23 November, 12.05 - 1.05 I'll be taking part in the 'State of the Nation' panel: 'Who are the Gatekeepers Now?' at the SCBWI annual conference.
In between, I'll be doing many school visits and bookshop events.
Meanwhile, Bloomsbury has reprinted Tom Finger which has been published in Chinese and the new Plaister Press book, We're Going to Build a Dam is published. Visit the page and read the reviews.
