Boys Learn From Writer in Residence

Friday, 30 March 2012

Bolton School Boys' Division has its very own Writer in Residence!

Iris Feindt works with Year 7 boys at the School, helping them complete a project which involves creative writing through creating a fantasy board game, with rules and instructions.  They then turn this into a quest style story which relates to the world they have created in the board game.

Head of English in the Boys' Division, Richard Griffiths said: "Iris has done a great job in encouraging the boys to be creative and imagine new worlds. She offers something very different to the usual English lesson and the pupils have responded with great enthusiasm."

Year 7 pupil Ali Khalid said: "The lessons have been fun because we got to be a lot more creative than usual, creating our own characters and making up our own fantasy worlds."

Iris has a Creative Writing MA which she studied for at MMU and now teaches creative writing. She recently started a small publishing house with former colleagues, and has been published in an anthology of short stories.
