Workshop Leader/Guest:

Sophie Anderson grew up with stories in her blood, from her mother, who is a writer, to her Prussian grandmother, whose own storytelling inspired The House with Chicken Legs.

Born in Swansea but now living in the Lake District with her family, Sophie loves walking, canoeing and daydreaming. Her dream is to create stories that help children to explore the world and fall in love with its beautiful diversity.

Sophie is represented by Gemma Cooper of The Bent Agency. Her debut novel The House with Chicken Legs published in 2018 with Usborne in the UK and Scholastic in the US. Rights have also sold in China, Croatia, Germany, Iran, Italy, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Taiwan, Ukraine and Vietnam.

Alice Broadway writes Young Adult fiction and is the author of the Ink Trilogy: INK, SPARK and SCAR. INK was one of the bestselling YA debuts of 2017 and was nominated for a Carnegie medal, the Books Are My Bag award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
Alice lives in Lancashire with her family, drinks more tea than really necessary and loves escaping to the Lake District in her yellow camper van to write and dream.
