Anne Rooney at the Royal Literary Fund Read to Lead Training Course
Anne Rooney, who is a children's author (but does also write stuff for grown-ups), is on our Read to Lead accredited training course at Burton Manor, Cheshire, this week. This course is a bespoke package for a selection of writers that are fellows of the Royal Literary Fund. Anne is one of these fellows and she's written about her first impressions on An Awfully Big Adventure Blog. Here's an extract:
