As well as writing this year I have been involved with a writing and arts project with St Anne's Primary School in Blackburn, Lancashire. Children in the school were working with myself and some other arts practitioners over the course of a couple of months to produce stories, craft, photography and art pieces.
I was lucky in that I got to work with most of the classes in school and we produced some great stories - including year four's The Dragon and the Firebird (Click on the title to go and read the story).
Year One's story even got made into a little picture book (illustrated by the children themselves) and put together by fellow practitioner Pippa Pixley (Pippa's first picture book - the Princess and the Pea is about to be published).
On with some stories of my own now...
