A visiting Author

Jude Lennon visited our school today. She spoke so enthusiastically about reading and writing and told us the story of how she became an author. She read one of her stories, which won a competition.

She gave us three very important tips for becoming a good writer:

  1. Read, read, read and then read some more!
  2. Write something every single day, even if it's only a post it note!
  3. Play, play and play some more because it develops your imagination!
