BSLF Education Outreach 2017

We celebrate the pleasure of reading by taking writers into schools, offering opportunities and workshops to encourage writing and by giving young people the chance simply to share the pleasure of words.

Our sincere thanks go to the Fryer Trust and the Norman Family Trust, our terrific sponsors, who recognise how important this work is and enable us to offer these events free of charge.

(These events are for schools only.)

Tim Bowler

Secondary School Visits
Monday 26 to Thursday 29 June 2017
Exmouth, Sidmouth, Ottery St Mary, Colyton, St Peter’s Exeter, Maynard, Crediton and Honiton.

Described by The Independent as ‘one of the truly individual voices in British teenage fiction’, Tim Bowler has had his 20 novels for children and young people translated into more than 30 languages.

River Boy was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Medal. He has won many other awards and his Blade series of urban thrillers has kept fans consistently gripped. The Sunday Telegraph has called him a ‘master of the psychological thriller’.

The Devon-based writer will be sharing his ideas and the plots behind his richly engaging books with students from all over East Devon.
