Inspired by budding young writers

Today I had the great privilege of going into Ilkley Grammar School to meet and speak to their newly formed creative writing group.


I was so encouraged to see twenty plus students and a number of teachers coming together to encourage each other to write. And to meet a modest but obviously gifted young author who had just won a national competition.

It’s great to see schools being so proactive in exploring creativity and nurturing talent.

Inspiring stuff. I hope to visit again soon.

Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to reading some of their writing as a number of the younger members are hoping to enter The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley’s children’s story writing competition later this month.
