Here's what William Gallagher thought about the Able Writers Workshop on the 27th September 2017

"It’s always a privilege to go into a school as a visiting author but the very best of it is when the school is as smart and energetic and enthusiastic as the pupils. Hampton Vale gathered together the very best writers they have from both their school and others in the area to make a raucous, creative, lively day of genuinely excellent writing. What I always want to do is give the kids a taste of what writing is like outside school, when it’s your life, and that means challenging them, changing things on them and never giving them quite enough time to finish anything. That is what it’s really like as a professional writer but it also gives the day the sense of an enormous and exciting rush. The pupils on the day I went ran with it. They wrote fast and they wrote startlingly imaginative work. They worked alone and they worked together: it was a joy to see kids from different schools meet for the first time and in moments be like they’d been friends for years. Writing is really about communication and on days like these it is the most exciting thing in the world." - William Gallagher
