We were delighted to host workshops and readings by celebrated author S F Said earlier this year. He was inspirational and captivated the pupils of Willow Brook with not only his wonderful stories but his own journey to becoming published: he suffered dozens of rejections, multiple re-writes and had to contend with being told he wasn’t cut out to be a writer.

Many awards and accolades later, he is now firmly established as a leading children’s novelist.
