Live Literature School Residency: Inverclyde Academy
Author of children’s and teen fiction, Catherine MacPhail, will be writer-in-residence at Inverclyde Academy in Inverclyde. S2 pupils will explore identity, place and Catherine’s work before creating new short stories.
Catherine MacPhail said:
‘This is what I look forward to about the residency: I want to inspire pupils to enjoy reading and writing, and to help them free the wonderful imaginations they have locked in their heads.’
Susan Morton, School Librarian, said:
‘A huge thank you from Inverclyde Academy for giving us this fantastic opportunity to host a residency with award-winning author, Cathy MacPhail! It will be wonderful to have Cathy’s input and support for the workshops, and it will be very interesting to see what stories our pupils come up with under her expert guidance. We’re really looking forward to starting our project!’
