Meet the Series Editor

Real Writing is built on a comprehensive, curriculum-linked framework devised by the literacy consultant Rachel Clarke, which covers the full writing programme of study for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Rachel's framework includes a detailed brief for each children's author to ensure that every text includes specific vocabulary, grammatical forms and structures, and rhetorical devices - as well as directions around genre and format.

Amazing Authors

Real Writing gives children examples of beautiful, powerful and effective writing from masters of the craft - helping them to produce sophisticated and nuanced work of their own.

Here are just some of the talented writers who have worked on the programme.

Jon Mayhew

Author of Mortlock and the Monster Odyssey, Jon is a much-loved children's writer who knows a lot about the classroom, having also spent 25 years teaching English in schools.

Joshua Seigal

An award-winning poet, Joshua visits schools, libraries and theatres around the country, and you may have spotted one of his critically-acclaimed poetry shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Ross Montgomery

Nominated for the Costa Children's Book of the Year, and the CILIP Carnegie Award, Ross' published works include Midnight Guardians and the popular Finney Island Files series.
