A new school project

I start a new project tomorrow in Inveralmond Community High School, Livingstone. Working with writer Mary Paulson-Ellis and teacher, Michael Stephenson, we'll be helping a third year group to develop stories through prompts which we hope will emulate our own creative processes and also emphasise the 'play' aspects of writing.

Michael is also currently the Scottish Book Trust's on-line teacher in residence, so his thoughts on the project can be followed through his blog, starting with his explanation of our approach to generating pupils' choice and enjoyment in their creative writing.
Tomorrow we're thinking about our first impressions of high school life, and what footwear tells us about characters...
