KAT - an exciting new project by Karen King

A writer's life can be a lonely one so I really enjoy it when I do school visits or work with other writers. Which is why I'm so excited about a new project I'm planning with my author friend and fellow ABBA blogger, Ann Evans. We both love to inspire children and adults to write so we're getting together to run workshops together both in and out of school. We've come up the with name KAT - short for Kids and Authors together - for our theme based creative writing workshops for children. Coincidentally, the initials could also stand for Karen and Ann together!

My illustrator daughter, Naomi, designed us this logo.



And our workshops for adults are called Write Now! because our aim is to get people writing. Again, Naomi designed the logo:

We've got our very first workshop planned on 1 September at 10 am, Tysalls Photography Studio, Nuneaton, which Ann shares with photographer Rob Tysall. We're really looking forward to it and hope this will be the start of a great working partnership. Wish us luck! And if you've any tips for running workshops that worked for you, we'd be delighted to hear them.

Good luck - I've been doing workshops for some time and love it, but it would be even nicer to have a partner to work with!
