Unlock your Children’s Creative Confidence at Something Wicked 2017
This October Bank Holiday weekend, unlock your children’s creative confidence and set them on the path to becoming the next J.K. Rowling or Stephen King by bringing them along to meet kids authors Erika McGann and Matt Griffin at Wicked Kids.
Erika will present “Secret Forts and Solving Crime: Making up the Bubble Street Gang” while Matt will present “Creature Creation: Drawing Pictures and Writing Stories.”
Erika was the winner of the Waverton Good Read Children’s Prize 2014 for The Demon Notebook, the first in her magical series about Grace and her four friends . The Clubhouse Mystery, Book 1 in the Cass and the Bubble Street Gang series is receiving raving reviews. The next book in the series, Making Millions is due for release in September and is suitable for children aged 7+.
Matt is a highly acclaimed illustrator and children’s writer. He was born in Dublin and now lives in Ennis. He has garnered a reputation as one of the most eclectic graphic artists in contemporary illustration, collecting awards and accolades for his work in publishing, advertising and, in particular, the field of poster art.
His passion for visual design was always married to one for writing. His first children’s novel, A Cage of Roots, was published in 2015. Storm Weaver followed the same characters further into a fantasy odyssey (2016), and The Spiral Path (2017) – suitable for children aged 10+ – brings the enemy through a time portal to modern-day Ireland.
