Sam inspired every single student in the room to write. She held them enthralled with her presentation which was very interactive. Sam removed effortlessly the barriers and fears students, particularly boys, can have about writing creatively. They could not wait to start writing!
Zoe Burton Eastlea School, Newham
“The teachers found it an inspiring event; the children were all engaged and at least one teacher came away with writing ambitions of her own. Boys do not often express themselves in the way they were able to with Sam’s input. They do not often take the time to describe events and scenes in such detail and from such an imaginative perspective.”
