Excellent day at Edge Hill University yesterday, working with creative writing undergraduates. They were lively, interested and responsive. And they wrote well in the workshop. Great to catch up with Andrew Taylor, Patricia Farrell, and to meet Lindsey Holland at last. And what a surprise to have a student at the session who I taught at Maharishi School. Brilliant.
I recently did a session for a wonderful group of primary PGCE students at Bath Spa on how to get children writing poems (or rather, in the case of Year One, making poems with the teacher acting as scribe). Teachers of the future. And what an excellent course they have there.
