I am pulling all the stops out for the members of Addiscombe Young Writers. I can hardly believe that this little group for 6 to 11 year olds who love to write has fared so well in the five years since it began! But it has and it just seems to get bigger and better. Last Saturday's session saw twenty youngsters turn up!
I don't know how many people read this blog but I am appealing today for any writers of children's books and poetry to contact me if they are prepared to pen a small message to the Young Writers as we celebrate our fifth birthday. The children voted for a party which will take place in July and one of the things I want to do, is present them with a folder full of inspirational congrats from successful writers. I have already had a good response and Writing Magazine kindly published an appeal in their April issue - and I am also going to put something on Linked In.
These youngsters have unbelievable depths of talent and enthusiasm, have had their work published and exhibited and won certificates and awards for all their hard work. Please put the word out to any of your contacts and come back to me, either via this blog, or their blog (addiscombeyoungwriters.blogspot.co.uk) and I will contact you by return and let you know how to send your signed greetings.
I really appreciate your help.
