Adopt an Author

27 Apr 2020

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.

Visit the official blog for a fascinating selection of their emails:

Produced for Brighton Festival by Collected Works CIC

Adopt an Author is supported by GM Building, The Ernest Cook Trust, The Lynn Foundation and Mrs A Lacy Tate Trust for their generous support to this project.
