Announcing the final speaker for the first Nosy Crow Masterclass: How to write Children’s Fiction

This coming weekend we’re holding the first ever Nosy Crow Masterclass: How to Write Children’s Fiction – an intensive, all-day writing masterclass, with sessions from authors, editors, agents, and staff at Nosy Crow, all focussed on writing fiction for children.

We’ll be joined on the day by speakers including Nosy Crow’s fiction editor, Kirsty Stansfield, The Rescue Princesses author Paula Harrison, literary agent Gemma Cooper, The Secret Hen House Theatre author Helen Peters, fantasy author Ellen Renner, and Nosy Crow founder and Managing Director, Kate Wilson. And today we’re very happy to announce our final speaker… it’s none other than The Grunts author Philip Ardagh!

The subject of Philip’s session on the day is a CLOSELY GUARDED secret, but I can promise that it’ll be a fantastic addition to the day. And if you’d like a taste of what’s in store, here’s the opening of The Grunts in Trouble, the first book in the hilarious series:
