Author Jon Mayhew Visit

Neston High School celebrated World Book Day with local author Jon Mayhew

Local author Jon Mayhew visited Neston High School on World Book Day. The author, who is known for his gothic fiction for children, began the day with a talk on the power of reading. Students learnt how the author had recovered from reading ruts in his childhood and how reading was the root to his success as a writer. Mr Mayhew discussed with students the best ways to revive a love of reading.

Two creative writing workshops were hosted in the school library to share with students techniques and tips to broaden creativity and improve writing. Students looked at the importance of structure in stories and drew inspiration from comics.

Jon Mayhew also signed and sold books after school before beginning a question and answer session hosted by book club.
