Author Masterclasses

Have you heard about our new creative writing platform, Authorfy

Authorfy uses the same approaches and methods as our LSW workshops but also includes author masterclasses and videos, where bestselling and award-winning children's authors inspire and set challenges for young writers. As well as enhancing the appeal of reading and writing, it teaches new writing rules and structures in a way that is fun, interactive and enjoyable.
