Saturday morning expansion! A ‘new’ tutor and a special guest tutor!

In Term 4 we started with six Saturday classes for the first time ever.

As a result we welcome the wonderful Duncan Matchett as tutor for the newest class. Duncan is an old hand at Saturday writing, having been a young writer himself for nine years and our 2017 intern for the the first three terms of this year.  Duncan has been published in ReDraft for the past four years. This year Duncan is a university student studying Psychology, and he works as an apprentice improviser at the Court Theatre.


With Heather learning the admin ropes this term, her class welocmes a very special guest tutor. Karen Healey is currently the Ursula Bethell Resident at Canterbury University, which means she is on leave from her teaching position and has the time and energy to work with our lucky young writers. And why are they so lucky? Karen is an award-winning best-selling writer of Young Adult fantasy fiction. She writes books…” about tough girls with brains and interesting boys with secrets.”


Despite having to say goodbye to some wonderful Year 13 students at the end of 2017, we hope to maintain our Saturday class roll for 2018. Make sure your friends all know about Saturday classes and book a space early.
