Adopt an Author will be back for 2017 and we are looking for classes to get involved.
Check out our video below for more information about the project and what we try to do…
In past years, we have had some amazing authors take part – A F Harrold, Ross Montgomery, Sarah Lean, Marcia Williams and Rob Lloyd Jones to name a few. With just eight weeks of correspondence with their respective classes, sending out writing or drawing tasks, answering questions and setting simples tasks to trigger the boundary-less imaginations of young people. Each author has put their own stamp on the project with wonderful results, our evaluations of each class reported that 85% children improved their own writing skills after talking to a real author and that a huge 75% of children felt inspired by the project to write their own stories!
This success has spurred us on to continue this project with great passion and determination to engage more classes and more young people with great published authors and illustrators who can inspire them to be creative in so many ways.
If you are a teacher, or a parent who can pass this on to a school to take part, please do! All you need to do is drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise the rest!
