The King's Lynn Literature Festivals and local schools
Guest writers at both Festivals are invited to visit local schools during the day on the Friday of the Festival weekend. Working with the class's English teacher, the writer might host a writing workshop, discuss their art or simply read passages of their work. While there's a limit to what can be achieved in a one hour tutorial, all parties agree that it's a worthwhile exercise. Local schools that benefit from this include: King Edward VII, Terrington St Clement High, Park High, Downham Academy, Swaffham Hamonds High, South Wootton Junior, Eastgate Primary and Springwood.
