Over the course of the last month, we have had the privilege of welcoming authors Ted Staunton and Richard Scrimger into the Zone to guide the students with their creative writing. There have been three visits so far, where Mr. Scrimger and Mr. Staunton have taught the students extensively on how to brainstorm, compose, write, and the hardest part - finish a story.
The students have come up with some interesting ideas, from being trapped inside a video game to archaeologists digging around an active volcano! The authors will be collecting the stories for editing and sending them back to the students on how to improve their writing. What a great opportunity!
In April the authors will be returning to the school when The Zone launches it's anthology.
