Author Visit by Rhian Ivory

Author Visit by Rhian Ivory to Borrington November 23rd 2018

Year 7 and Year 8 enjoyed a fantastic visit from Rhian Ivory last week.  Rhian is currently writing her ninth book (a career that began as part of her lesson planning as an English teacher) and has been nominated for several awards. Her novel ‘The Boy Who drew the Future’ was nominated for the Carnegie Award in 2017 and several students purchased signed copies from Rhian during the day.

Rhian’s talks focused on her journey from full-time teacher to writer, including fascinating details of her own research. Students were particularly intrigued by her story about a ghostly encounter during a visit to the ‘Corpse Tunnels’ in a former workhouse…

Rhian also delivered two workshops during the day in which students began creating their own fictional characters. Rhian shared details of her own planning methods with the students who will be able to apply these to their own writing; she also revealed that ‘The Boy who Drew the Future’ was re-drafted seventeen times!

Rhian made such a good impression on the Year 7 students, that we found ourselves having to turn away keen writers from a very full workshop.  We look forward to inviting Rhian to visit us again in the future.
