Today author Simon Bartram visited us in school to share tell us how he came to be a successful published author. He explained the process his writing process, showed us his notebooks, first drafts, editors notes, final draft and published text. He helped us to see how the draft edit and re-draft process in school is similar to what 'real life authors' use in their work. We have made some changes to the way we approach writing in school. We will be devoting more time to re-drafting and improving our work. We look forward to publishing our favourite pieces in class books. We are all excited about Author Time and can't wait to get writing!
