Dosbarth Oak, Maple & Sycamore want to say an enormous Diolch yn fawr to author @sophieinspace for kindly meeting with us virtually to answer all our book & author related questions. Your knowledge, advice & encouragement will inspire us as we continue our story writing journey!
@ANewChapterBks @moffat_andrew @sophieinspace Nothing Ever Happens Here touches on this, and there's a bullying / fear of the same side-backstory in Heartstopper, too
Every day, I call my mum and she tells me how many more people we have lost. Family friends, elders, people I went to school with, aunts and uncles. Every home in India has been touched by grief. I don’t think there is a way to articulate this level of devastation and tragedy.
I've got to the stage in life where a pair of thick chunky socks and a cup of tea make me very happy
Have just heard that I’ve been awarded a @Soc_of_Authors award for my next book after (M)otherhood! This means so much as a recognition of my work and its value. Thank you #SoAGrants

Just finished this warm, witty MG about friendship, football and family. Vivid memories of my own time as a football captain. But Jaz is rather better at it. Congratulations on this fantastic debut with a sparkling voice by @priscilla_mante
Well good, but just think what women’s causes that £100,000 could have been spent on. Transphobia rots the brain, truly.
full story: Throwing out the attempted judicial review today, Mr Justice Henshaw, sitting in London’s High Court, said Ann Sinnott's case was “unarguable” and that its interpretation of the Equality Act 2010 is “wrong in law”
BREAKING: Judge has refused permission for a judicial review of the Equality and Human Rights Commission's guidance on the Equality Act 2010, gender reassignment and single-sex spaces. It was brought by LGB Alliance co-founder Ann Sinnot who crowdfunded £100k in legal fees.
Take a look at this FABULOUS illustration by @themaxlow for #TheMab: a retelling of Welsh myths and legends for young readers. I'm very proud to have a story in this collection. Pre-order your copy now!
This arrival has cheered me up no end, @KathLangrish . Lovely to see @neilhimself has already read and enjoyed it. There is something so powerful in returning to these places we traveled into so unreservedly as children. Thank you!
It's weird to think that two of the most-hyped children's authors TODAY are men who blacked-up on television.
@SusannaRustin @rapclassroom The idea that being good about some things is a pass to be a harmful bigot about something else is not a great one.
