Our thoughts are bees
Writers Working with Schools
by Mandy Coe and Jean Sprackland
If you are a writer, teacher or coordinator, this book is for you. It gives advice on organising exciting projects in schools, from the author's visit to the long-term residency. It examines the potential impact on young people's lives, and sets out a vision for the future of writing in education.
"This book is exactly what it should be: useful, practical and detailed but also inspiring, enlightening and far-reaching. Writers as well as teachers will find it invaluable. I recommend it whole-heartedly."
Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate
"Packed with the information - and imagination - that teachers need to do amazing work with writers in schools."
Chris Meade, Booktrust
"This is a very important book for teachers, writers and literary organisations - the honest, comprehensive resource we've all been waiting for."
Sophie Moxon, Live Literature Scotland
