A Day At The Desk

Today I am delighted to welcome fiction translator Adriana Capadose to the Day at the Desk feature. Adriana translates fiction from French to English, and has kindly taken time to answer questions from year 8 & 9 children at St Joseph's High School in Slough.

I am particularly thrilled to welcome my friend the poet and author Claire Dyer to today's 'Day At The Desk' feature.  After a busy month with the triumphant launch of her latest novel The Last Day, Claire has generously agreed to answer questions from a local school about how she juggles writing poetry and prose, teaching and numerous other creative commitments.  Welcome Claire.

Rosie loves Jack. Jack loves Rosie. So when they're split up, Rosie will do anything to find the boy who makes the sun shine in her head. Even run away from home.  

 

Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
