Yesterday was our last session with the pupils of Shawlands Academy in our capacity as Writers in Residence at the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2015 – as part of the Booked programme. The pupils have created four comic stories based on fairy tales and raps which we are now in the process of assembling into a special publication. We’ll see them all again at the end of January for the final Burns Night celebration event at The Glad Café where Dave Hook will also do a performance and the pupils’ work will be showcased.
Can’t believe that’s the sessions all over already – the weeks have all flown by in a flash! Have thoroughly enjoyed working with the book festival, Dave Hook, and the pupils and teachers of Shawlands Academy. We’ll post a link to the finished work in the new year, in the meantime, here are a couple of drawings that the pupils created.
