Book Corner

One of the best ways to learn about writing is to read stories written by other authors. You can see how authors have created characters, settings, and dealt with different topics and issues.

Reading widely, outside your favourite book & genre, is important as it encourages writers to explore different styles and genre while finding their voice.

The Junior Writers Club book corner will feature the Book of the Week that is in our e-newsletter, as well as tips and information to get your child reading.
