Our course CREATING A COMPELLING AND ADAPTABLE AUTHOR EVENT is the first of three training sessions delivered as part of the National Literacy Trust’s initiative, 21st Century Authors. During this workshop authors and illustrators identify and articulate what it is that makes them and the books they write unique – and work on creating a coherent, engaging and audience appropriate event.

Today’s authors were: Leo Hunt (Thirteen Days of Midnight – Hachette Children’s Books), Joanne Owen (Circus of the Unseen – Hot Key Books), Virginia Bergin (Storm – Macmillan Children’s Books), Jessamy Taylor (King’s Company – IndieBooks), Helen Baugh (The Witch with an Itch – Jonathan Cape), Bea Davenport (The Serpent House – Curious Fox), Jess Bright (Sister, Sister – Oxford University Press), Carla Spradbery (The Memory Hit – Hodder Children’s Books) and Sarah Courtauld (Buckle and Squash and the Land of the Giants – Macmillan Children’s Books).
