This month, Write For Real will be focussing on Rhian Ivory, who is one of the exciting YA authors to be featured in next month's UKYA Extravaganza in Birmingham.
Date: February 28th.
Venue: High Street Waterstones.
Rhian writes under the pen-name of Rhian Tracey, and has been writing stories since she was 5 years old. She teaches work-shops for students of all ages, and is especially passionate about school visits. Currently she is impersonating a workhouse guardian and dragging around a chest full of Victorian curiosities to inspire students' creative writing!
She has written a host of children's books, both for teenage and the younger audience, and her latest book, The Boy Who Drew the Future, is about two boys trying to escape the past of their village, which was once renowned for witchcraft.
Our next posts will focus on her books, her writing journey and writing tips for new writers...
