Chipping Norton Literary Festival has announced the line-up of highly acclaimed children’s authors for its 2016 programme. This is the fifth ChipLitFest and the most diverse programme yet, all to be enjoyed in a beautiful Cotswold setting.


Alongside the big names, there are debut novelists with very bright futures and much-loved writers from many genres including a host of children’s writers and creative writing workshops.


Children’s authors appearing include: Joanna Nadin, John Dougherty, Jo Cotterill, Cathy Brett, Tanya Landman, Atinuke, Paul and Helen Stickland, Steve Cole, Sarwat Chadda, Teresa Heapy and Sue Heap. The festival is also organising a series of schools workshops with authors including Adam and Charlotte Guillain, SF Said, Bali Rai, Tamsyn Murray, MM Vaughan, Candy Gourlay and Cas Lester.


Acclaimed novelist, Tessa Hadley, will be presenting one of our creative writing workshops as well as judging a short story competition that has already seen entries from across the world. We are joined by two young people, a 10 year old and a teenager, on our blogging team who are interviewing many of our children’s authors.

Has Lovereading4kids discovered the next Christopher Paolini?

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Christopher Paolini was a publishing sensation when he had the first of his Inheritance cycle book, Eragon published when he

was only 20. He had written it when he was just 15.

But perhaps, we can go one better. Lovereading’s new sister site, created to allow previously unpublished authors or self-published authors promote their books, has just been sent a novel written by a 10 year old – we think it’s excellent and believe the author clearly has the talent when he is a little older to get a publishing deal.

Will Goddard was born on Valentine’s Day 1998, some 17 weeks premature gaining him a Guinness Certificate for being Britain’s earliest surviving baby. Having battled through his first difficult years he showed an early love of reading, a skill he developed by reading the subtitles on television programmes. Clearly this worked as we think he will be a published novelist sometime in
