Author Provides Inspiration for English Students

Published 01 February


GCSE English students were this week visited by author and former Craven College tutor, Gavin Jones.

Gavin, author of “Dawn Chorus”, spoke to students about his inspiration and writing process.

Susan Hargreaves, English tutor, had recently read his collection of short stories and advised a colleague to use one for an English Class. “Dawn Chorus” is a short, heartfelt story with an interesting structure.

Susan Hargreaves said: “The students enjoyed listening to Gavin and in particular the advice he gave about writing a story in a restricted time limit, as per their GCSE exam.”

Gavin has agreed to judge a creative writing competition which will be launched soon across College.
