Zoe Gilbert visits Ballakermeen

Categories: The Arts,

We were privileged to welcome author Zoe Gilbert to Ballakermeen on Friday morning. Zoe’s debut novel Folk was published to critical acclaim in February this year. Inspired by the Isle of Man, Zoe’s novel has overtones of ancient folklore and fairy tales.

Year 12 English Language and English Literature pupils were lucky to attend a workshop facilitated by Zoe. She talked about how she constructed her stories and shared strategies that pupils could utilise in their own creative writing. Zoe also discussed what life is like as a writer.

It was an informative and engaging experience for all.

Our thanks goes to Manx LitFest who gift us an author visit each year.
