Something else I’ve been meaning to tell you about is Start the Story, a new digital magazine being put together by me and my old mate, Tommy Donbavand. It’s aimed at teachers, librarians and parents, and is full of exercises designed to make writing lessons much more exciting for pupils.
We also recommend brilliant books for readers of all ages, provide suggestions to make homework more fun, and run competitions to win books, author visits and more.
You can download the first issue now from the website – just go to StartTheStory.co.uk and click the big yellow button at the top to get your free issue. If you’re reading this and you’re a school pupil, tell your teacher about it, and hopefully your writing lessons will become much more interesting from here on in.
