We’re hugely excited to be welcoming Pie Corbett, the creator of Talk For Writing, to The Mead in January 2018. Pie will run a one day conference at the school, focusing on practical strategies for developing children as storytellers and writers. Pie will look at how to help children learn a bank of stories through story mapping, using actions and through play.

Pie explains the principles behind Talk For Writing in this video:


You can also read more about the approach, and its impact, here.

Pie’s national conferences often sell out months in advance and tickets cost over £200 per delegate. We’d strongly recommend you make the most of this unique opportunity to see him in person within your local area by booking a place on our conference on 4th January 2018. You can do this here or by calling us on 01225 759273.
