This exciting project to promote literacy and writing sees primary schools across Brighton & Hove linking with authors in eight weeks of creative fun and emailed inspiration. The project culminates in a ‘Meet Your Author’ party, at which each class meets its adopted author. This year Carden, Patcham, Stanford and Woodingdean Primary Schools are adopting the novelists Sarah Lean and Ross Montgomery and the comic artists/writers Marcia Williams and Gary Northfield.
