 David J Jeremiah, barrister and author, was the Attorney General of the South Atlantic island of Saint Helena for over six years and returns there regularly with his Saint Helenian wife Joy. The island is one of the remotest places on earth and for over five hundred years following its discovery in 1502 it was reachable only by sea. An airfield was completed there in 2016 but a scheduled air service has yet to be established. It is home to the world’s oldest reptile, boasts a large number of plants and creatures that are unique to the island and is famous as the place to which Napoleon was exiled for the last six years of his life.
David is the author of “Shakespeare’s Island: Saint Helena and The Tempest“.

Writing for Children – Workshop  Dan A

with author

Dan Anthony

Practical ideas on creative writing for children and how to get published.

Dan lives in Pembrokeshire and writes for children and grown-ups.

His radio plays have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Radio 3 and Radio Wales, he helped S4C develop its successful children’s series Y Meees and was a scriptwriter on CBBCs Tracy Beaker series.

As a result of this experience he plucked up the courage to try writing a book himself, something his school teachers told him never to do. His first children’s book, The RugbyZombies was nominated for a Tir na n-Og award from the Welsh Books council and he has since completed the popular RugbyZombietrilogy. Dan has visited many schools to talk about his work and leads themed walks around Cardiff for Cardiff Children’s Literature Festival.

Dan’s first book for Firefly is Steve’s Dreams: Steve and the Sabretooth Tiger, published in May 2014. The sequel Steve and the Singing Pirates published in October 2015.

For creatives and inventives, who pride themselves on their self-styling, his workshops turn ugly ducklings into flocks of geeks.

This one is chance to develop your own ideas, experiencing the relationship between sharing and collaborating and owning and enabling creative experience.

Dan Anthony’s workshops on creativity are enabling experiences, they’re also great fun.

As well as writing and originating hit TV series, children’s novels, plays and situation comedies for grown ups, Dan has twenty years’ experience working as decision maker and manager in the field of intellectual property. Previous workshop clients include National Museum of Wales, Cardiff University, Trinity College St David’s, Cardiff Art School, CIRIC, The Welsh Books Council and schools and colleges throughout the UK. He blogs and writes about IP for the UK IPO, WIPO and OHIM and runs workshops on IP and creativity for students.
