It was a real privilege to welcome English author Anthony John McGowan for our very first Excellence Programme series talk earlier this month.
Mr McGowan has written many books for children, teenagers as well as adults with many accolades under his belt including winning the 2020 CILIP Carnegie Medal for his novel Lark.
The session, which was held in the Boyd Campbell Hall, was extremely interactive and engaging as the author spoke about his experiences as a writer. He also shared some valuable tips on all elements of the writing process, which the pupils welcomed.
It was a wonderful opportunity to have been able to hear from such an accomplished author and we are very thankful to Mr McGowan for his visit.
