A Workshop with Sarah Ann Juckes

  • January 26, 2023

This week the children at Hartsholme Academy were lucky to attend an amazing virtual workshop with author Sarah Ann Juckes.

Sarah Ann Jukes has both won and been shortlisted for various writing prizes, such as the Mslexia Children’s Novel Competition and the Bath Novel Awards – she is currently Waterstones’ writer of the month.

We were introduced to her new novel ‘The Night Animals’, where a little girl named Nora welcomes into her life a range of ghostly night animals who help her deal with the difficult moments that may arise in her day.

We also recieved some fantastic tips on how to become an author and about the process of writing a novel.

“With hard work, anything is possible.”

A valuable piece of advice from Sarah.

The children at Hartsholme Academy thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and have become even more inspired to write their own stories – some children have now shared their aspirations to become published authors in the future.
