By popular demand, the next course in Bute Park will be Can You Write for Children? Over six Sundays, participants will look at the basics of plot, character and voice in writing both picture book texts and stories for older children. The course is suitable for writers of any experience and is taught by Jon Blake.

Jon is the author of 60 works, and was shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award in 1995. He wrote You’re A Hero Daley B (2012) which has sold 200,000 copies.

The price will be £95 (£85 if you’ve previously taken a course), with concessions for the unwaged.

If you have any doubts or queries about the course or  about putting pen to paper, contact Jon via phone or email: 07599
