Author Beams Down to Find the Writers of Tomorrow
Students in years 7 and 8 were fortunate enough to be visited by children’s sci-fi author Alex Scarrow (Time Riders) on the 22nd November. All the students got a chance to meet the author and hear how exactly he concocted his futuristic tales and where he draws his inspiration from; many students were able to speak to the author and get their copies of Time Riders signed. Some Year 8s were lucky enough to attend a writer’s workshop with Alex Scarrow, receiving an inside view of the methods and tricks he uses to craft his stories, as well as having the opportunity to create and generate their own ideas. Students were very keen to meet the author and the library copies of Time Riders were checked out almost immediately!
