A bestselling children’s author and poet offered advice to budding authors from seven different schools this week.

Neal Zetter, met with year seven students at Wilmington Grammar School for Girls for an interactive session on Tuesday.

The award-winning comedy performance poet read from his works and answered questions from students from the girls’ grammar as well as nearby Wilmington Grammar School for Boys, Wilmington Academy, Longfield Academy, Dartford Grammar School for Girls, The Holmesdale School based near Maidstone and Strood Academy.

Mr Zetter uses writing and performance to develop literacy, confidence and creativity in people of all ages.

“His advice for any budding authors or poets was to ‘read as much as you can and practice, practice, practice.”
