Today, St Edmund‘s College was delighted to welcome Matt Oldfield, author of the hugely popular football biographies for 9–13 year olds, to their school. Oldfield spent the day speaking to students about his books, offering advice and insight into the world of writing. He also visited a class to give them the skills and tools to write their own novel, assisting them with pointers on how to start a story line. The students at St Edmund’s College were thrilled to have the chance to meet Oldfield and learn more about the craft of writing about footballers. Many said they found his stories of writing success to be inspiring and motivating.
