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 will be helping 180 year 8 pupils create a picture book for Reception pupils.
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.
Selkie was re-issued by Plaister Press Ltd in 2010, The Little White Sprite was published in 2011 and Zoe's Boat was published in 2012.
