A Unique Experience

As one of the projects in our Creative Writing Club (Year 9 every Wednesday lunchtime in S1 with Mrs Duffy) we had to write to our favourite living author. Although some of us only received responses directly from the book publisher, I was fortunate enough to receive a personalised letter from the author I wrote to—all the way from the USA!

One day, when I came home from school, I found a letter on the rug at my front door. As soon as I looked at it, I saw someone’s handwriting on the envelope and I couldn’t believe it was from my favourite author. I was so surprised and happy that my eyes started tearing up before I even opened it. Having my favourite author write back to me and notice me was a really amazing opportunity and I’m glad that being in Creative Writing Club gave me this opportunity.
