25 May 2023 - This week we are delighted to add the Mentoring Writers latest ‘In Conversation With’ YouTube video to our website.

Check out the YouTube page on our website and listen to the interview with Picture Book author Claire Donald as she tells us why she gave up teaching, took up writing and how she is back in the classroom as an author doing school visits, bringing fun and joy to primary school teaching across the country.

Also learn how her first picture ‘Mother Earth is Weeping’ is now used as part of the school curriculum on environmental studies. What drives her and how she creates her stories with the help of her two exuberant grandsons.
