Much To Do About Writing.
This is my journal about my experiences and thoughts on writing, with particular reference to writing for children and the education market, but maybe a few other things mixed in.
Station. I thought this was particularly appropriate because of the link with Paddington Bear, us being children's writers and all.
Here I am with the honorary guest Cliff McNish and my wonderful friends, Trish Phillips and Sue Hyams. Trish insisted I get in a photo. I thought I was doing a good job of avoiding being in the pictures by being in charge of the camera. LOL! Thank you Bex for taking this photo.
We were all having so much fun we forgot to have our photo taken downstairs with Paddington Bear. But, I did find out the last chance to book for the British SCBWI Onwards & Upwards conference, is Saturday 23rd October. That's this week! So, if you haven't got round to sending in your booking form yet, you better get a move on.
My employment background has been largely within primary education, where I was a teacher since 1988. I became a full-time freelance writer in 2002, after the birth of my third child. Now I mainly write teacher resources for primary school and illustrated children's non-fiction but, have also published short stories in women's magazines and articles in my local newspaper. I have a regular column in Writer's Forum about authors and their research and have been published in some county magazines. I am a member of the Society of Authors, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Network for Information Book Writers and Editors (NIBWEB) and the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE). I am also a member of the History Association (HA). For more information about me check out my website: www.anitaloughrey.com
