Flip on the road

A busy couple of days coming up on the Flip tour of schools.
Tomorrow morning, I’m visiting Newshome High School, in Huddersfield, to run a creative writing workshop for a group of Year 10s and to give a talk, reading and Q&A to pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9. Then, I’ll be hopping on a train to Chelmsford and staying overnight (in a Premier Inn, no less – who said writing isn’t glamorous?) before a morning of workshops and talks/Q&As at Great Baddow High School.

Great Baddow is one of the participating schools in the 2011 Essex Book Awards, for which Flip has been shortlisted, and my visit is one of the events in the lead-up to the voting to decide the winner, to be announced in February. The other titles shortlisted for the award, sponsored by Micro Librarian Systems, are: Hidden, by Miriam Halahmy; Sky Hawk, by Gill Lewis; A Beautiful Lie, by Irfan Master; Trash, by Andy Mulligan; and Half Brother, by Kenneth Oppel.
