national storytelling week
Engaging and enthralling, teenage fiction writer Seth Burkett proved the ultimate inspiration for students when he visited as part of National Storytelling Week. Mr Burkett was a professional footballer in Brazil before becoming a ghost writer for sports stars and then a writer of teenage fiction. Now the author of 14 books, he spoke to Years 7-9 about living and working abroad as a footballer, his novels and love of reading and writing. He also provided plenty of advice to students for their own writing and storytelling.
