Mike Revell, author of Stonebird and Stormwalker

Pupils taking part in the James Reckitt Book Awards were lucky enough to meet one of the participating authors.  Mike Revell, author of Stonebird and Stormwalker, talked to the pupils about his own journey to becoming a writer and the things that inspired him on his way.  Pupils were then able to take part in a workshop where Mike helped them to create a story and introduce strategies that could develop their own creative writing.  The visit ended with Mike and the pupils visiting the library for a Q and A session followed by a book signing.  As Stonebird is one of the pupils' favourite books from the awards, they were thrilled to have this exciting opportunity to meet and work with Mike.
