I’ve recently started running creative writing workshops in schools, based on some of the finds I’ve made mudlarking in the Thames in London. It’s great fun and has already yielded some fantastic stories.
A recent trip to Pershore High School in Worcestershire was especially fruitful. The quality of the creative writing was awe-inspiring! Judge for yourself: here are the stories that Emma Rowling, Rosie Edwards and Isabel Jones came up with. They’re all very different and all brilliant.
