BEBINGTON High Sports College was privileged this week when local author Sue Hoffman came to the school to give a talk on her fantasy novel, High King.
Sue, a retired teacher herself, is helping to inspire Bebington’s students to develop their creative writing skills and desire for literature.
The idea for Sue’s book came after she had planned an activity/adventure course for her students, with the theme of a mysterious island and an heroic Prince.
Sue told the students how she went about trying to get her short stories and book published and the perils and pitfalls that it can entail, but also how rewarding it can be to see your own work in print.
Sue will be taking two further sessions on creative writing in Bebington High School’s library, teaching the students how to develop ideas and draw them together in a convincing piece of literature.
There is no doubt the students were inspired and enthused after the presentation.
