As part of our celebrations for World Book Day, St Dunstan's was visited by vibrant, young author of 'Saving Death', R L Endean. In assembly, she talked about early influences as a writer, how she went about getting published and showed students a vlog created at the Young Adult Literature Convention in London.
Assembly was followed by workshops for the Gifted and Talented in Year 9 and 10, where students were given more of an insight into the next instalment, following 'Saving Death' . Students were also crafting new worlds for creative stories, and thinking about characterisation. Following the event, a parent reported that her son had been so inspired by the visit that he began writing as soon as he returned from school instead of playing Fortnight!
R L Endean's book, 'Saving Death' is available to purchase on Amazon.
