Class Writing Competition celebrating the publication of Ghost Stadium by Tom Palmer
We’ve got wind of a competition for schools to win a visit from children’s author, Tom Palmer. Read about his visit to last year’s Manchester Literature Festival’s Family Reading Day here and learn about the fun he brings to a room.
Details of the competition can be found below, and good luck!
