First published in Education news

A YORK school played host to two authors this week, who arrived to talk about the life of a writer and do creative writing workshops with the children.

Tanya Landman, author of the Goldsmith's Daughter, Apache and the Poppy Fields Mysteries; and teen fiction author Patrick Ness, both visited St Olave's School.

Tanya spoke to children from Years 4 to 6 and ran a creative workshop.

American born Patrick - who wrote the Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls - won the Carnegie Medal for the best new book for children and young adults in both 2011 and 2012. He came to the school to talk to students from Years 7-9 about his work and sign copies of his book.

St Olave's students were joined by visiting children from Canon Lee, Millthorpe, Manor, Mount and Queen Margaret’s schools for the talks.
