Note that I am also delighted to be tutoring for Writing School East Midlands this academic year, and will be teaching a six-week evening class on Writing, Planning and Pitching Non-Fiction [not quite in that order!] in Leicester in the Spring term.
I’ve also had fun in the past few months delivering a bespoke grammar-focused session for my local SCBWI group (Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators), of which I am a member. As is frequently mentioned in the press (e.g. alongside discussion of the dreaded KS2 tests), writers often aren’t formally trained in grammar – and may well be self-conscious about it!
