David used effective, creative techniques to build the group's confidence and get their ideas flowing, resulting in not only the enthusiastic children, but also their rather more tentative and self-conscious parents, creating original and moving stories.

An excellent visit that really inspired the children. They are now very enthusiastic about both writing and illustrating their own books.
Teacher, Highdykes Primary School, West Dunbartonshire
David Lucas’ stories hold you spellbound and then he shows you how to do it yourself, by giving us all hints on illustration and storywriting at the workshops.
His visits are magical and we’re looking forward to a few more budding authors and illustrators emerging in West Dunbartonshire!
