Yesterday I had the pleasure of giving a talk at the University of Exeter’s CREATEseminar with Emma Metcalfe of Bath Festivals’ Write Team on the impact of creative writers working in schools.

In particular we drew attention to the difference the project made to pupils’ confidence and to changes in practice in participating schools.
