Waterstones, through BCA’s support, hosted the second annual celebration of the BOLD’s Year 5 Talented Writers project. Outstanding writing from St Margaret's was shared through green screen technology for parents, staff and two wonderful children’s authors; Cathy Cassidy and Curtis Jobling! During the evening children learned from their ‘adopted’ authors how they pursued their careers in writing – daydreaming and following your hobbies their two key ingredients!
Guests and participants after the event said:
“It was my absolute pleasure to attend the BOLD writers literary celebration. As a Warrington lad, it had me bristling with pride to see so many children who grew up in the same town as me, taking those early steps with their creative writing that quickly became great strides. The quality of work was superb, and the future is bright and BOLD for Warrington’s future storytellers and talespinners. Congratulations to all the boys and girls who took part, and heartfelt thanks to all the teachers and parents who supported them.” CJx @curtisjobling on Twitface
