The Oban Times - - Leisure -

BUD­DING writ­ers at Lochaber High School were thrilled when a tal­ented au­thor vis­ited them in class.

Shona MacLean, au­thor of Cru­cible, The Re­demp­tion of Alexan­der Seaton, Game of Sor­rows and The Seeker, paid a visit to the ad­vanced higher English stu­dents on Novem­ber 13.

The writer spoke to the pupils about char­ac­ters, set­ting, start­ing and end­ing a story and, most im­por­tantly, stick­ing to a plot. She then put on a cre­ative writ­ing work­shop, which was a real eye opener for the teenagers.

English teacher Sharon McGoni­gal said: ‘ We really en­joyed Shona’s visit. We learned a lot and we’re all en­cour­aged to read her books.’
