It’s year two of the National Literacy Trust’s 21st Century Author initiative – supported by Arts Council England – and 2015 has kicked off to a flying start. A big thanks to the gang at Penguin for hosting our first session, where we were joined by authors from five major publishers and focused on creating event content.

L to R: Justin Somper (AuthorProfile), Jane Lawes (Perfect Pirouette – Usborne), Tracy Gunaratnum (Preposterous Rhinoceros – Maverick), Jane Elson (How to Fly with Broken Wings – Hodder), Jane Porter (Pink Lion – Walker), Michael Byrne (Lottery Boy – Walker), Tom Moorhouse (The Rising – Oxford University Press) and Clare Helen Welsh (Aerodynamics of Biscuits – Maverick).
