Newport pupils work with celebrated children's writer,G.P Taylor.

Talented writers from Newport had the wonderful opportunity to spend the day working with the celebrated children's writer G.P Taylor. Critics have proclaimed this talented author as the next C.S Lewis (The lion, the witch and the wardrobe ) and a worthy successor to J.K Rowling (Harry Potter ) so it was fabulous for Jonny, Thea and Arthur to work with Graham on getting to grips with creating new and exciting characters. A master of suspense , this New York Times acclaimed author shared his tips on how to quickly get started writing. Reading extracts his own work, Graham gave an insight into how he gained inspiration for intriguing situations that are full of twists and turns as well as creating  interesting characters from the world around you. A big thank you to Mrs Brierley, Newport's English curriculum governor, who accompanied the children on this memorable day. GP Taylor signed several copies of his latest book, Mariah Mundi The Midas Box which are now available for all pupils to borrow from the school library.
